What is (are?) the Digital Humanities?
Like jazz, digital humanities (DH) is likely recognizable when you encounter it, yet scholars have a difficult time defining it. Here are two attempts.
- Digital humanities is a sub-field of humanistic study that studies the human record using information technology.
- Digital humanities are the array of convergent practices used by educators, librarians, academics, and artists that use digital tools to enhance older and distinguish newer methodologies of research, criticism, and creative expression.
In addition to thinking about what DH is or are, the University of Maine Humanities Initiative is dedicated to building a humanities infrastructure which promotes, educates, and innovates various matters of DH through our affiliated projects, symposia, and speaker series.
