2. Digital Humanities (DH)


  • The digital humanities ("DH") is an important new field of the humanities. 
    • DH uses digital and networked information technology to study humanities subjects such as literature, history, art, etc.
    • DH uses information technology to study the humanities in new ways not previously possible.
    • But DH also makes information technology itself an object of study from a humanities perspective.
    • DH is both theoretical and practical ("yack" and "hack").
