What Are the Digital Arts and Humanities?
The Digital Arts and Humanities involve the application of digital technologies to humanities and arts research and pedagogy.
As digital technologies become increasingly accessible, omnipresent, and adaptable, they offer exciting new directions for arts and humanities research and creative activity. New capacities for archiving, displaying, publishing, and organizing data present opportunities for arts and humanities faculty to think creatively about innovative methods for collecting, using, storing, analyzing, and presenting their work. These digital formats also present unique scholarly questions about the nature of knowledge and information, the ethics of its representation, and possibilities for engaging a variety of audiences beyond traditional academic networks. IDAH supports the exploration of these issues through collaborative work between arts and humanities faculty, and faculty working with other digital technologies, as well as librarians, technical staff, and other professionals.
