DH in a picture: the Elephant in the Big Tent (optionally under an umbrella!:-) But really, we are all still trying to fill in “the big empty space for a mission statement, and a definition of the field (which we at DH don’t have yet)”[1] [1](Terras, Melissa. “Present, Not Voting: Digital Humanities in the Panopticon.” Understanding Digital Humanities. Ed. David M. Berry. n.p.: Palgrave Macmillan, 2012. 172-190. Print.)

The exercise of defining digital humanities can often leave us with more questions, lingering theories and answers that allude to some aspect of the question but which inevitably lead to assertions that perhaps, digital humanities, is open to interpretation. Essentially, what it is or is not is based on “your” interpretation and perspective as either a practitioner, theorist or an observer. In its simplest guise, digital humanities (from my perspective) is the provision and development of technology for the humanities, which is itself focused on artifactual evidence to theorise and explore human culture, thought and society.

For me, Digital Humanities mean combining digital representation and novel automatic analysis techniques for textual and non-textual data in order to address new research questions from the Humanities and answer old questions better or differently. Ideally innovation in this process should happen both on the Humanities and the technology side.

DH is the field in which Humanities and Information Technologies can interact and support each other. On one side Humanistic competences can help Human Language Technologies to tackle one of the most difficult challenges of the discipline, which is the handling of the semantics of human language texts. On the other side Information Technologies can support research activities where the analysis of texts and images plays a crucial role and that are traditionally qualified as Humanistic (e.g. Historical and Literary Studies; Cultural Heritage).

The organic nature and exciting potential of digital humanities makes defining the discipline a challenge even for experienced practitioners. With that in mind, could Oscar Wilde be right – “To define is to limit”? [1] Based on the work I do, DH is the application of digital technologies to traditional data and artefacts in order to make new interactive resources for those who are teaching and learning history. [1] (Wilde, Oscar. The Picture of Dorian Gray, (1891), 217. CELT: Corpus of Electronic Texts, Retrieved: April 3, 2014.)

DH is where the traditional fields of the humanities meet the technological advances, and increased accessibility, made possible by computers. It enables researchers to combine traditional methods with the processing power of computers.

DH in a narrower sense is a discipline in its own right. It is a metadiscipline to the humanities. DH in a wider sense regards the digital transformation of the disciplines within the humanities and thus takes place within these disciplines as well.

Personally, I don’t define DH. Definitions should be done by others than myself. But I have a pretty clear understanding what I think DH is: DH is the “place” where various disciplines meet, especially informatics and humanities. There are numerous of problems that can only be solved if those expertises are brought together. The project I’m working on – SeNeReKo – is a great example for such co-operation of multiple disciplines.

Digital Humanities for me is what happens when we plug humanities into computationally powered amps, and an audience that was expecting the comforts of communal affirmation has to decide whether or not to pick up new instruments and to experiment and push the limits.
