Digital Humanities (DH) is not just a buzzword recently created to bolster flagging interest in the humanities. Branching off of humanities computing, changes in technology over the last few decades has opened the door for bold and interesting new research, scholarship, and pedagogy.
With collaboration being a key theme of the Digital Humanities, the New Media Consortium (NMC) and Emerging Learning Design (ELD) are working together to start our own conversation in this area. Below find detailed information on:
