What is Digital Humanities?

Digital humanities (DH) research, practice and teaching inhabit the points of contact between digital technologies and humanities disciplines. University College London Centre for Digital Humanities describes DH practice as an intention ". . . to produce applications and models that make possible new kinds of research, both in the humanities disciplines and in computer science and its allied technologies. [DH] also studies the impact of these techniques on cultural heritage, memory institutions, libraries, archives, and digital culture."
