Introduction to the Digital Humanities

What is Digital Humanities?

That's a difficult question to answer, but Elaine Callinan offers this definition:

"DH merges the practices, styles and systems from ‘traditional’ humanities fields (e.g. history, philosophy, english, etc.) with the computer programmes/tools (such as data/text mining, data visualisation, etc.) to a) answer research questions; b) challenge existing theories; or c) create new/novel questions not before considered, ultimately to bring a new approach to research."
