About the Digital Humanities

Sometimes also called humanities computing, the digital humanities is the field where humanist inquiry and emergent digital technologies intersect. Digital humanities describes both the activities of developing the tools necessary for scholarship, research, and teaching in the digital age, as well as producing scholarly work by applying these new tools to traditional arts and humanities disciplines.
