Digital Humanities is an evolving, cross-cutting field within the humanities which employs computer-based methods. Research in this field is an interdisciplinary endeavor that often involves researchers from the humanities and from computer science. This collaboration shapes the methods applied as well as the theories underlying and informing research in those different fields. These implications need to be addressed according to the traditions of different humanities‘ disciplines. Digital Humanities Research furthers publications from all those disciplines addressing the methodological and theoretical implications of the application of digital research in the humanities.
The series Digital Humanities Research is edited by Silke Schwandt, Anne Baillot, Andreas Fickers, Tobias Hodel and Peter Stadler.


First volume of the series:

Silke Schwandt (ed.)


Digital Methods in the Humanities
Challenges, Ideas, Perspectives

Digital Humanities is a transformational endeavor that not only changes the perception, storage, and interpretation of information but also of research processes and questions. It also prompts new ways of interdisciplinary communication between humanities scholars and computer scientists.

This volume offers a unique perspective on digital methods for and in the humanities.
