What is Digitial Humanities?

Like the humanities, digital humanities can be challenging to define. At the Miami Libraries, we understand DH broadly, to include a wide variety of practices in which digital technologies facilitate research or learning in the humanities. These include, for example, computational analysis of cultural forms such as texts, images, or music, as well as teaching methods that leverage digital tools to provide new ways for learners to engage with questions or materials associated with human culture and values. We regard critical discourse surrounding digital humanities and the social function of digital technologies as not only within the scope of digital humanities, but as essential to its ethical practice.

Here at Miami, the Libraries work to provide access to digital humanities services and tools, and serve as a point of connection between students and faculty members who are engaged in digital humanities research.
