Accepting the psychology of failure is part of the life cycle of innovation. Yet when the academic culture of peer review and promotion runs up against budget realities and resource scarcity, skittishness about failure arises. Digital Humanities work embraces the iterative, in which experiments are run over time and become objects open to constant revision. Critical design discourse is moving away from a strict problem-solving approach that seeks to find a final answer: Each new design opens up new problems and—productively—creates new questions.

This is not meant to be an exhaustive or definitive list of new methods and genres but rather a conceptual and theoretical introduction to emergent practices of scholarly inquiry. We move from examining the impact of technology on the most established of humanistic practices—the decisions about what constitutes a text and its variants—to positing that enhanced critical curation of those texts makes possible augmented editions and fluid textualities that rely on the affordances of digital environments.
