NMC Beyond the Horizon > Digital Humanities Today

Digital Humanities (DH) is having an impact on the way many disciplines do their work and those outside the Humanities have an increasing profile.  DH enables the analysis of data in ways that are or were not possible without technology and brings a humanization to areas not traditionally seen as humanistic.  DH research includes, but is not limited to, visualizing or manipulating texts to reveal patterns, the display of complex histories through interactive maps, the creation of 3D models to aid in the recreation of historical sites and artifacts, and much more.

ELD and NMC will be holding this online panel discussion as a way of culminating both organizations spring and summer conversations surrounding Digital Humanities and as a jumping off point for a collaborative and ongoing effort designed to inform and advance the pursuit of pedagogy and research in the Digital Humanities. Join this panel discussion as we examine digital humanities in today’s higher education environment.
