The Victorians provided a model for broad, integrative thinking about how we understand and describe our world. They did this in part by aligning their conception of scientific inquiry and technological accomplishment with their conceptions of art. Their views can also inform how we think about technology in relation to the arts and humanities today. This talk, originally presented as the keynote address for the 2017 Victorians Institute conference “Victorian STEAM,” makes the case for bringing some of that old Victorian sensibility to our world of digital humanities, STE(A)M, and other kinds of integrated thinking we would like to teach our students.
