Digital Humanities

Digital humanities is a broad term that encompasses multiple disciplines within the humanities, including history, art history, African and African American studies, women and gender studies, English language and literature, writing and rhetoric, and more. At the most basic level, digital humanities simply refers to the use of digital tools and methods to further scholarship. At its more complex, digital humanities involves re-imagining the way we approach sources and data, research, narrative, and the publication and interpretation of scholarship.

DiSC and GMU University Libraries support digital humanities research and scholarship in a variety of ways:
