The digital humanities, also known as humanities computing, is a field of study, research, teaching, and invention concerned with the intersection of computing and the disciplines of the humanities. It is methodological by nature and interdisciplinary in scope. It involves investigation, analysis, synthesis and presentation of information in electronic form. It studies how these media affect the disciplines in which they are used, and what these disciplines have to contribute to our knowledge of computing (Kirschenbaum, 2010).
Benefits of Digital humanities
- Integration of qualitative and quantitative approaches. You can present and interlink digitized text, images, and time-based media with maps, timelines, data, and visualizations.
- Content management and data analysis. You can mine, map and re-organize the resources – whatever you need to uncover trends, themes, and key learnings.
- Quicker access to information through digital access. This means more people can review, see, and learn from the project. You are also able to more easily search through the data, combine different data sources, hyperlink to relevant background materials, and more.
- Enhanced teaching. Digital Humanities helps students learn by being able to see more, experience more, and collaborate together.
- Improved collaboration. Digital resources and environments can provide a common plaform for project development and group-sourcing of materials, and facilitate local, regional and global partnerships.
- Public impact. The projects extend beyond the classroom and make a public impact. Not only does this help show the value of the study of Humanities, but digital projects can also help inform and engage those outside the university setting.
