How do you Define DH?

The humanities are the humanities. Technology is merely a tool (albeit a powerful one), not a defining factor of a discipline. You use it or you don’t. The Digital Humanities do not exist.

Bio

I am a cultural heritage informatics specialist at the American Numismatic Society, working on a variety of linked open data applications in the field of numismatics and expanding a bit into Greek pottery (a personal side-project). I also develop open source archival software for creating, managing, and publishing EAD finding aids and social networks built upon EAC-CPF (an emerging LAM standard for modeling people, families, and corporate entities). With a background in classical archaeology, I have employed 3D reconstructions for visualization and simulation of past environments.
