My Digital Humanities - Part 2

  • This video  features Toma Tasovac, Director of Belgrade Center for Digital Humanities (BCDH), Serbia.  In this video Toma defines how he understands Digital Humanities.  Toma  argues that Digital Humanities runs the risk of becoming a 'decontextualiser of  traditional humanities, thus, turning everything into conveyor belt scholarship'. On the other hand, he believes that Digital Humanities allows for deeper and more meaningful engagements with our (digitised) cultural heritage in ways and forms that were not available before.
