At their simplest, Digital Humanities is/are 'the humanities done digitally', emerging wherever computing power and the digital realm intersect with humanities scholarship. Some describe it as a field, others as a collection of techniques or practices for study, research and teaching. Still others would claim it is diverse and still being defined.
They often involve applying digital methods and practices to researching and teaching in social and cultural realms, as well as critically exploring the evolution of humanities disciplines in the digital age. Whatever they might be, they seem highly collaborative, non-respectful of disciplinary boundaries, and generative both of scholarship and of debate.
An online coursebook introducing basic skills and addressing critical issues in digital humanities relevant to a wide range of disciplines. The lessons assume no prior knowledge or experience and are meant to introduce. Based on the Introduction to Digital Humanities course at UCLA, taught by Drucker and Kim in 2011/12.
An online learning programme for university staff and graduate students developed by the University of Melbourne Library to help researchers develop a strategic approach to integrating digital skills into their work. Similar programmes exist at the Bodleian Library and Edinburgh University.
Aimed at helping both novices and more advanced users of digital tools and approaches understand common terms employed in the digital humanities. Originally compiled by Daniel Powell in conjunction with the Early Modern Digital Agendas institute in July 2013, updated April 2017.
The application of new techniques and technologies in the Arts & Humanities.
