Jewish Studies "Born Digital"
By Heidi Lerner
Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Spring 2011
The author describes the digital revolution in Judaic Studies, in which new forms of digital scholarship, discourse, and output that challenge scholars to reorient the way they think about and conduct their work are appearing. This includes work and methods of communication that have been entirely "digitally born," in other words, scholarly and creative output that do not or cannot have a print or analog version. Some of these digitally born works and methods may even have been initiated outside of the academy or by students. She argues that Jewish Studies scholars need to be familiar and conversant with the tools and structure of this digital environment.
