Debate about the risks and opportunities of Digital Humanities

The JBH publishes two texts in its debate section (in Dutch and French) of the double sized issue of 2017 (2-3) about the risks and opportunities of Digital Humanities (‘On Big Data: issues, opportunities, dangers’). Christophe Verbruggen, Ramses Delafontaine, Fien Danniau and Sally Chambers of Ghent University focus more on the opportunities. Pieter Lagrou and Ornella Rovetta (Université Libre de Bruxelles) point, together with Delphine Lauwers (Belgian State Archives), more to several potential problems and risks. Catherine Lanneau offers a short introduction.
