What are the digital humanities?

The digital humanities (DH) are a set of research and teaching methodologies that involve the use of computing technologies to perform or assist traditional humanities methods.  The field, originally known as humanities computing, began in 1949 when Father Roberto Busa and IBM collaborated to create the Index Thomisticum.  DH consists of a vast number of tools, methods and fields that this guide can only begin to touch upon.  Here you will find project examples and resources for several DH subsections.
