Digital Humanities

What is Digital Humanities or DH?

There are as many definitions of Digital Humanities as there are ways to participate in it. Here is one particularly succinct definition:

Digital Humanities includes, but is not limited to, the practice of humanities research and the development of digital resources through the use of information technology for the specific use and study of the humanities and interconnected disciplines. DH "is also concerned with an exploration of how humanities may evolve through their engagement with technology." (Ernesto Priego 2012.) 

The mission of the Society for Scholarly Publishing is “[t]o advance scholarly publishing and communication, and the professional development of its members through education, collaboration, and networking.” The Scholarly Kitchen is a moderated and independent blog aimed to help fulfill this mission by bringing together differing opinions, commentary, and ideas, and presenting them openly.
