Digital Humanities: About


What is Digital Humanities?

Northwestern University Libraries (NUL) takes a capacious, pragmatic, and inclusive approach to digital humanities, understanding it to be interdisciplinary humanities research, teaching, learning, and publishing, that can be:

  • Presented in digital form(s)
  • Enabled by digital methods & tools
  • About digital technology & culture
  • Creating and experimenting with digital technology
  • Critical of its own digital-ness 

This guide introduces Northwestern University faculty and students to digital humanities, focusing particularly on services provided by NUL, past and present faculty projects, recommended readings and resources, and news and updates from campus and beyond.
