Description

Digital Humanities is an interdisciplinary approach to research as it uses modern technologies. The methods of how information can be displayed have increased in the 21st century, while developing new forms of inquiry and knowledge production. This expanding field can provide new ways of interacting with texts, images, and societies. It breaks the boundaries of traditional research methods in favor of a new, open-source way of acquiring knowledge. To understand this rising field as it can pertain to human culture is to emphasize the technologies and methods being used in digital humanities, and to explain various successful projects in the field. These projects focus on multiple aspects of the fields, including conservation, preservation, archiving, education, and many more. Those in humanistic research fields should consider how the digital culture can be an asset when applied to their areas of study. In the technological era, subjects of the humanities disciplines, particularly those related to art, history, and culture, should utilize digital humanities.
