Burdick centers her book on what is digital humanities? Digital humanities is a vague term. As an emerging field, Burdick takes on the challenge in uncovering a more specific definition of what it is. But she also mentions how people use this field through projects. She has a section at the end of the book where she provides various examples of the structure and methodology digital humanities project takes on. Her goal is to give more insight on how this field works within academia and outside as well. It is the duty of the humanists to make something out of this emerging field and sustain its existence. Without taking the time to know what this field consists and contains, then the field will lose its meaning and purpose.
