link(s) above to find out more about the group and how to join. Digital
technologies are transforming the ways in which information is created,
understood, and communicated. Digital Humanities utilizes and examines these
transformative networks, technologies, and media in order to investigate and
communicate their impact on art, culture, and society.
The Digital Humanities Research Group at the
Charles Phelps Taft Research Center conceives of this developing field of
research as comprising three main areas:
use of digital tools such as electronic literary analysis, digitization,
visualization, and mapping technologies to enrich research in the
use of new media forms such as digital publications, digital archives, and
interactive media to disseminate and share information.
investigation into the aesthetics and the cultural impact of new
technologies and new media.
The Digital Humanities is an inherently
collaborative and interdisciplinary field of study that positions itself at the
intersection of technology and the liberal arts. The Digital Humanities
Research Group welcomes scholars in all fields and at all levels who are
interested in working together to understand how information is created and distributed in the digital age.
