Digital Humanities Toolkit: Home

A guide to Digital Humanities for Rowan University faculty and students.

Introduction to Digital Humanities

What are the Digital Humanities? The definitions are many and varied. For our purposes, we will go with using digital tools and analyses to answer humanities-based questions. For example, using digital mapping to shed light on 18th-century trade routes, or using digital text analysis to look at how beauty is described in all of Shakespeare's plays. The tools available for digital humanities research can be applied to an undergraduate paper or a long-term faculty research project. With such a large range of resources, figuring out what constitutes the Digital Humanities and how to get started can be daunting. Hopefully, this guide will help orient you and give you ideas on how to integrate digital humanities into your teaching.
