Digital Humanities: About


A Guide to Digital Humanities

This guide introduces Northwestern University faculty and students to digital humanities, including services provided by the Libraries (see below), examples of faculty teaching and research projects, recommended tools and resources, coverage of issues, the latest readings, guidelines for evaluation, and links to funding opportunities and campus partners


What Is Digital Humanities?

We take a broad, critical, 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 and tools, about digital technology and culture, experimenting with and developing digital technologies, and critical of its own digital-ness.
