At City University London: The Digital Humanities


Today I will be talking about “the digital humanities” (DH) for the Library, Publishing and Information Society seminar at City University London (#citylis).

We will go from the definitional debate and a bit of history to infrastructural issues; we will do an overview of major trends and terminology, talk briefly about the digital humanities in the UK and major international networks, and will aim at finishing thinking about DH in libraries and strategic challenges.

I am honoured to say Dr Lee Skallerup will be joining us live from Kentucky, thanks to that technology known as ‘the Web’, to discuss her views on DH, ‘the privilege of building’, access, etc.
