Digital Humanities is the work of self-identified interdisciplinary scholars; experts trained in the fields of empirical and social sciences. These practitioners employ the help of digital tools, methods, and research for the presentation, curation, distribution, and analysis of empirical or social inferences. These digital projects, some of which incorporate the usage of complex computational and mathematical algorithms, presented by these trans-disciplinarians, are structured to shed light on data that would have otherwise been obscured by its non-digital nature.
I have defined Digital Humanities (DH) as such to heighten its main objective, education through presentation. The goal of any DH scholar is to create an atmosphere of learning and collaboration through the discovery of new and innovative answers to questions of empirical or social value. This field is interdisciplinary, and it is through this collaboration that scholars of DH are able to build, interpret, and codify massive amounts of metadata. In the end, DH is a field of academic inquiry, it invites critique and review from its multi-faceted constituency. Just as scholars and practitioners of any professional field partake in constant communal communication, so too must DH scholars create a field of learning and educational outreach.
