Digital Humanities?

Digital humanities is an interdisciplinary research field and set of methodologies situated at the intersections of humanistic inquiry and digital technologies. In practice, this might mean creating a digital game about migration and colonization, building a database of music and the performing arts in Colonial America, "reading" thousands of texts computationally, recreating early wearable technologies to study cultural history, or any number of other investigations.

Taking a look through the projects listed on the DHCommons Projects Page is a good way to get a sense of what digital humanities actually is. Or, see What is Digital Humanities? for alternative definitions.
