Digital Humanities

Digital humanities (DH) refers to both an academic field and a social movement in which research work and teaching in the humanities make use of digital technology. Generally, this term refers to the application of computer technology to academic fields that have traditionally been strictly text-based. Uses of such technology in DH include computation; database indexing; digital preservation; presentation and distribution of research findings; use of multimedia such as graphics, video, and audio; and modeling and mapping applications.
