Resource: Introducing the Digital Humanities from the University of Michigan Teaching and Technology Collaborative

Presented to the University of Michigan Teaching and Technology Collaborative (TTC), the presentation, “Introducing the Digital Humanities,” was a whirlwind tour of new large-scale databases and tools for conducting and storing research, and a demonstration of some of the interactive platforms for broadcasting and publishing findings. We examined the digital humanities as a dynamic field (or perhaps “set of practices” is a better descriptor) that relies on and benefits from the scale of  the Information Age and which, in equal measure, provides a uniquely humanist take on the  new media making such scale possible.
