Subject: new book (+ HCS)

For those interested, just published:

I modelli nella ricerca archeologica. Il ruolo dell'informatica.

(Convegno Internazionale, 23-24 novembre 2000) = Contributi

del Centro Linceo Interdisciplinare, n. 107. Roma, Accademia

Nazionale dei Lincei, 2003. 202 p., ISBN 88-218-0900-5, Euro 15.-

The authors of the contributions are: J.-Cl. Gardin, A. Guidi,

P. Moscati, F. D'Andria, G. Azzena, A.-M. Giumier-Sorbets, A.

Bietti, M.P. Guermandi, T. Orlandi, F. Djindjian.

The Conference is the second step in the progress of a research

about Humanities Computing (or Humanities Computer Science)

patronized by the Centro Linceo. The first Conference was held

in 1998 and published in 1999, also in the Series of the Centro

Linceo: Il ruolo del modello nella scienza e nel sapere =

Contributi... n. 100, 219 p. --

I take the liberty of making two remarks, referring to the

recent discussion on Humanities Computer Science (Humanist 17.545

etc.):

1) The signalled books being mainly in Italian, nobody as usual

will read them, let alone evaluate and discuss the ideas proposed.

Mark that modelling etc. is fashionable today in HC(S), but

was it in 1999?

I have already tried to point out this bad situation, but I

want to add: it sound reasonable that an HC(S) scholar should

know the humanistic culture "at large", and not only one branch

of it. Well, do HC(S) fellow scholars believe that it is possible

to have a good idea of humanistic culture without reading one line

of Italian? Granted, the cultural position of Italy is irrelevant

after some decennies, but -- santo cielo -- its literature has

taught something to the others for a few centuries, and you cannot

really know it without knowing Italian!

2) And speaking of humanistic culture at large, it also sounds

reasonable that if a really transverse discipline HC(S) exists,

the scholars who want to cultivate it should study (and publish

in) not only one branch of it. I happened to write articles trying

to show the influence of CS in the field of philology, literature,

archaeology, and history; the experience has been interesting,

but rather discouraging. Are there others?
