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 of humanists–educators, librarians, alternative academics, and artists–who build tools, assimilating the old and distinguishing the new 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.
