What are the Digital Humanities?
Digital Humanities is an emerging area of study that is interdisciplinary, collaborative, and creative. The digital humanities brings computing to humanities research and teaching in order to make our work accessible to the public in new and exciting ways with the advent of new 24/7, always-available technologies of the Internet, Twitter, and other forms of social networking. The field focuses on the digitization and analysis of materials related to the traditional disciplines of humanities research. Research and teaching now incorporate data visualization, information retrieval and digital publishing to the traditional humanities fields of history, philosophy, linguistics, literature, art and more.
