• Introduction to Digital Humanities

    Welcome to the course: ‘Introduction in Digital Humanities’. Through a series of videos featuring a variety of voices and perspectives and discussing a range of methodologies and theoretical approaches, this course aims to explore the history, practice and people involved in the evolving, highly diverse, and interdisciplinary field of Digital Humanities.

    This course brings together established and emerging scholars from different parts of the world, fields and disciplines, theoretical and methodological traditions, who demonstrate the diversity of Digital Humanities by critically approaching schools of thought, methods, tools, standards, projects, and teaching practices. At present, we have two strands: one that addresses the question What is Digital Humanities under the title: ‘My Digital Humanities’; and a second entitled ‘Digital Humanities in Practice’ which goes into more depth theoretically or methodologically, or focuses on disciplinary practice, standards or approaches.

    All videos include metadata about the speakers, the contributors, and the production, as well as a list of references for those who would like to delve into the various topics. Each video is also tagged using terms from the NeDiMAH Methods Ontology (NeMO), a CIDOC-CRM compliant ontological model which explicitly maps out the interplay of factors of agency (actors and goals), process (activities and methods) and resources (information resources, tools, concepts) in Digital Humanities scholarly processes.

    #dariahTeach would like to encourage professionals who work in the field of Digital Humanities or in related fields to submit their own videos to be featured under our two strands: ‘My Digital Humanities’ and ‘Digital Humanities in Practice’. Visit the ‘How to Contribute’ page to learn more.
