About Digital Humanities


Digital Humanities (DH) is widely considered as an area of scholarly activity at the intersection of computing or digital technologies and the disciplines of the humanities. This is a possible definition of the term:

“Engaging technology as a humanist and using technology to engage everything else as humanist; or, being a humanities scholar in the modern, technology-mediated world.”

Carl Stahmer (participant, Day of DH)

That said, there is no single, universally agreed upon definition of what constitutes Digital Humanities. Instead, scholars all over the world have come up with their own individual definitions. Some of these definitions can be viewed on the What is DH? site. A new definition is displayed each time you refresh the page.

This subsite of AUC Libraries provides information on DH activities at AUC, includes a showcase of important DH projects elsewhere (for inspiration!), and contains suggestions for including DH work in the classroom.
