Today, we had a lively & well-attended lunchtime discussion exploring digital humanities and digital scholarship. We looked at some examples of DH/DS projects and then discussed some of the questions folks had like
- What’s the difference between digital humanities and digital scholarship?
- What about open access and copyright?
- Can you talk about DH/DS without using jargon?
- What is and isn’t digital scholarship?
Here are some links to some of the projects and resources we looked at, along with some additional information to help you continue exploring the topic:
