RS (remix studies) + DH (digital humanities): Critical reflections on chance and strategy for empathy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter focuses on how measurement of cultural data as practiced in the Digital Humanities (DH), and appropriation and recyclability of cultural material, as practiced in remixing and analyzed in Remix Studies (RS), can be valuable in countering cultural reluctance to acknowledge facts that go against people’s beliefs. After discussing the different performances of the work, the author reflect on how the premises that emerge from it are relevant to RS and DH in direct relation to empathy and the limitations of human anxieties. RS and DH emerged during our advanced stage of technological innovation: When measuring holds a privileged position in the world, as a means to analyze how things function. DH makes it possible to measure the creative process, while RS evaluates, based on DH methods, in order to understand the implications of originality as part of the human struggle between the individual and the collective.
