Digital Humanities (DH) is the conjunction between computer science and humanities.
While a relatively new field (since the 1980's) of research and teaching, DH has a crucial role in teaching and research due to its increasing relevance and use of advanced technology-related methods in arts and humanities research.
"There is a wide range of computational tools that enables humanities scholars to conduct research at a scale once thought impossible. Digital humanities foster collaboration and traverse disciplines and methodological orientations, with projects to digitize archival materials for posterity, to map the exchange and transmission of ideas in history, and to study the evolution of common words over the centuries.
DH projects implement tools such as 3-D mapping, algorithmic literary analysis, advanced visualization techniques, and digitization of textual corpora in non-Latin languages. Researchers experiment and interact with source materials in ways that yield new findings, while also building community and sharing information."
