Center for Digital Humanities

Digital Humanities is an interdisciplinary field that encompasses many kinds of content; it is a space of experimentation in which new methods are being deployed. According to one definition, Digital Humanities is the future of our cultural heritage. The ways in which we archive, search and access the records of the past are being transformed in the Information Age. Digital Humanities is the interdisciplinary field that seeks both to shape these transformations and to study their effects.
