Digital Humanities Resources: Home

Welcome to Digital Humanities

Digital Humanities (DH) is a field at the intersection of computing/digital technology and the humanities. The borders of DH are amorphous. This website offers over 500 definitions of DH. It can be any scholarly activity that involves making use of analytics tools, analyzing research materials in digital form, or presenting scholarship on digital platforms. Since the subjects of DH may not strictly based in the humanities, researchers may find overlaps with work being done under the umbrella of the field of Digital Scholarship (DS). 

This guide introduces Syracuse University faculty, students, and staff to digital humanities resources, including recommended tools and databases, readings on the latest developments in the field, recent and upcoming events on-campus, and examples of teaching and research projects.
