Digital Humanities

A introductory how-to guide on Digital Humanities.

What is Digital Humanities

Plainly stated, digital humanities (DH) is a field of study at the intersection of computing and the disciplines of the humanities. However, that is a simple definition of what the digital humanities is and what the field can be. There are many different definitions of digital humanities and each one can be germane to a researcher or instructor's field of interest or individual to the work of an organization. Digital humanities can be the use of computing tools in the course of humanities research, the presentation of humanities research in a digital environment, or the investigation of the intersection of media, technology, and culture in the "digital age." However one defines digital humanities, it is a significant academic research field of inquiry and the Center for Digital Scholarship strives to meet the needs of DH researchers in their work.
