"The next big idea in language, history and the arts? Data.

Members of a new generation of digitally savvy humanists argue it is 
time to stop looking for inspiration in the next political or 
philosophical “ism” and start exploring how technology is changing our 
understanding of the liberal arts. This latest frontier is about method, 
they say, using powerful technologies and vast stores of digitized 
materials that previous humanities scholars did not have."
