How do you Define DH?

Digital humanities is the application of technology to humanities research. The best digital humanities projects contribute something to scholarship that could not have been conveyed as well or at all via traditional publishing such as print monographs and journals. Hopefully the term “digital humanities” will be dropped as projects that integrate technology become part of the norm.

Bio

For over three years I’ve been a librarian at the National Humanities Center, a post-doctoral research institute in North Carolina. I work with research fellows from around the world who are working on book projects in anthropology, art, classics, history, literature, and music. Prior to this position I was an Instruction Librarian at Adams State College in Colorado. I have a background in Classics and English literature.
