RUIZ, Iván y RUSSELL, Jane M.. Relevance of the digital text in linguistic and literature research in the Philological Research Institute of the National University of Mexico (UNAM). Investig. bibl [online]. 2005, vol.19, n.39, pp.97-119. ISSN 0187-358X.
The present article arises from a question fundamental to the scientific and technological development of the humanities disciplines, as well as to the relationship between digital and printed text and, more specifically, the pertinence of the first to the research activity of language and literature scholars. Our reflection is based on field research carried out in three centers of the Philological Research Institute of the National University of Mexico (UNAM): Center for Literary Studies, Center for Hispanic Linguistics and the Seminar on Poetics. We looked at the response, impact and "future" of digital text in relation to print, in these centers. Our interpretation of their views leads us to confirm the need for further reflection on the fundamental question posed by Chartier "How to install the written word on the screen?". Our reply to this question, which is based on the analysis and interpretation of the responses to our survey, focuses on the necessary cross linkage of digital with print. In this way, we can begin to work more specifically on the architecture of digital texts.
