About this Guide

Audience: The primary audience of this subject guide is students and faculty at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln who are interested in the intersection of digital technologies and the humanities. This subject guide focuses on digital humanities issues related to the teaching, research, and scholarly communication interests of the local digital humanities community, with a specific focus on information relevant to digital humanities courses at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Despite this focus on DH at University of Nebraska-Lincoln, others outside of University of Nebraska-Lincoln also may find this guide useful, especially given the inter-institutional, cross-disciplinary nature of DH and the fact that collaborations regularly extend beyond a single physical campus.

Goal: The goal of this subject guide is to synthesize the wide variety of resources available for learning about and doing DH into a single, easy to use resource. In its present iteration, this guide is purposely broad in its focus, with the goal of introducing users to digital humanities. Future revisions of the guide may include additional areas of more specific focus, tailored, for example, to digital history, electronic scholarly editing, and text analysis.

Defining Digital Humanities

Digital humanities (DH) defies a single, tidy definition. Most broadly conceived, DH can be thought of as scholarship at the intersection of the humanities and technology. Within its curricular programs, University of Nebraska-Lincoln has described digital humanities as "[pursuing] the study of human culture through emerging technologies and across disciplines."

For a sense of the variety of ways digital humanities as a field, methodology, and praxis has been defined by members of the DH community, see University of Nebraska-Lincoln grad student and Stanford University Academic Technology Specialist Jason Heppler's website, What is Digital Humanities? The site includes more than 500 definitions of digital humanities.
