How do you Define DH?

Digital humanities is an exciting and emerging discipline bringing together technology and the humanities . But it can be many things beyond: it is a means to enhance scholarship through digital sourcing and computer technologies; a means to design less “traditional” forms of scholarship; a means of engaging students in lecture, discussion, and technology; to a means to disseminate scholarship to wider audience (particularly important given recent complaints about humanities and the academy); etc. etc.
