Digital Humanities

Description

The editors of A Companion to Digital Humanities provide a historical and disciplinary context to computing in the humanities. This article gives an overview of the theory and techniques that digital humanities apply to the study of texts and other objects of creative expression. The authors also identify two key issues in the digital humanities: preservation of cultural heritage, and developing tools that will enhance data analysis and improve our understanding of texts, past and present.
