What are the Digital Humanities?

Digital Humanities work is interdisciplinary, collaborative, and creative. It weaves new media tools and data and computational sciences with humanities methods, primary materials, and theoretical frames in order to address the complex challenges of 21st century digital cultures. The field includes a wide array of methods, including creating digital versions of archival and rare materials, large corpora, virtual recreations, and analysis of "born-digital" cultural materials. Research and teaching now incorporate data visualization, information retrieval and digital publishing with the traditional humanities fields of history, philosophy, linguistics, literature, art and more.

To explore the digital humanities at ASU, the IHR supports the Nexus Digital Research Co-op (previously known as the Nexus Lab), which is an effort to support and foster interdisciplinary digital scholarship. As a co-op, Nexus is a communal effort to advance digital research, critical making, and research on digital cultural production.
