Debates in the Digital Humanities

Kathleen Fitzpatrick

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter discusses the field of digital humanities. Digital humanities grew specifically out of an attempt to make “humanities computing,” which sounded as though the emphasis lay on the technology, more palatable to humanists in general. The field’s background in humanities computing typically results in projects that focus on computing methods applicable to textual materials. As it is currently practiced, digital humanities is not just located in literary studies departments; the field is broadly humanities based and includes scholars in history, musicology, performance studies, media studies, and other fields that can benefit from bringing computing technologies to bear on traditional humanities materials.

Keywords:   digital humanities, humanities computing, computing methods
