“Digital Humanities, once referred to as “Humanities Computing”, is the intersection of computing, research, and teaching in the fields of the humanities. It is the use of computing to engage with texts. Brett Bobley, Director of the Office of Digital Humanities at the National Endowment for the Humanities, describes DH as “an umbrella term for a number of different activities that surround technology and humanities scholarship…includ[ing] topics like open access to materials, intellectual property rights,…digital libraries, data mining, born-digital preservation, multimedia publication, visualization…technology for teaching and learning…and many others” (Gavin, Smith & Bobley 2012. pp 61-66). It can be as simple as digitizing texts for archiving or preservation purposes or to make them available to a wider audience. Digital Humanities can also be much more complex promoting tools and content for more sophisticated analysis.” (
