This study presents an empirical perspective on the early history of digital humanities by tracing publications in two foundational journals (Computers and the Humanities, established in 1966, and Literary and Linguistic Computing, established in 1986), with particular emphasis on media types and authors’ disciplines. These efforts are in broad solidarity with alternative histories of the field that attempt to move past the heterodox narrative of textual corpora and specific disciplines.
