How do you Define DH?

The intersection of digital technologies and the humanities. Others will have greater concern with defining the first term; I want to remember that humanistic inquiry involves the preservation, translation and interpretation of inherited cultures. So digital humanities do all of that through the tools and methods available in digital technologies. In a real way, the digital changes and transforms culture, too.
