Description
Digital Humanities is a young field of research, focused on the use of computational techniques to support research in the Humanities and Social Sciences. One of the key drivers of the field is the recent availability of large digital repositories within many areas of the Humanities and Social Sciences. These repositories offer the prospect of applying computational visualization, querying and analysis techniques, leading to the discovery of new knowledge and insights. The field also applies new digital techniques to enhance approaches, processes, skills and methods developed and applied in the Humanities. This includes the use of digital techniques in instructional sciences, the use of digital games in social sciences or the use of digital techniques in online publishing.
