SUMMARY : If we do not use the label ‘digital sciences’ for work in biology, astronomy, physics, etc., then why do we conceptualize a subfield called ‘digital humanities’? Why aren’t all humanities scholars considered digital humanists by default? In this talk I would like to both problematize any effort to define Digital Humanities, while simultaneously showing how DH is central to my own research. As I step through the various aspects of common DH definitions, I will explore how these align with my efforts to better study and understand the human past. Although I am highlighting the challenges of terminology – I actually hope to use this critical approach to identify multiple opportunities for all of us to advance the humanities and push the boundaries of our fields.  [Go to the full record in the library's catalogue]
