Digital Humanities at Seton Hall University

The Seton Hall Digital Humanities Committee defines Digital Humanities (DH) as a broad and dynamic interdisciplinary field of study. DH scholarship explores traditional areas of humanities through the application of new technologies, as well as applying traditional humanities-oriented questions to emerging technologies in society.  Digital scholarship at the university can be found within three main areas of study.

New

Explorations of traditional humanities-oriented areas of study that are made possible through the use of statistically grounded, computer-enabled analysis that includes text mining, spatial analysis, data visualization, etc. Research can be both theoretical and methodological in focus.

Research

Into the creation of pedagogical tools and applications of technology to improve classroom learning, as well as studies into how emerging technologies change pedagogy. Research that both advances the use of technology in the classroom and examines and assesses the impact on learning is included.

Application

Of traditional areas of critical theory from the social sciences and humanities to study new media and emerging technologies. Research will advance an understanding of the impact of a rapidly expanding digital culture.
