How would I define DH?

Public-History-Cultural-Heritage.jpgPublic-History-Cultural-Heritage.jpgPublicHistoryCulturalHeritage.jpgPublicHistoryCulturalHeritageThe organic nature and exciting potential of digital humanities makes defining the discipline a challenge even for experienced practitioners. With that in mind, could Oscar Wilde be right – “To define is to limit”? [1]

Based on the work I do, DH is the application of digital technologies to traditional data and artefacts in order to make new interactive resources for those who are teaching and learning history.
