Using this Guide

  • This guide was created to make DH related library resources accessible and discoverable to those interested in the dynamic field of Digital Humanities. Any questions about using the guide or about DH research more generally should be emailed to the Subject Librarian, Niamh McGuigan. If there are items missing from the guide that you believe to be beneficial to the study of DH, please share your thoughts with us! We intend for this guide to evolve with the field, therefore constructive input is greatly encouraged. 


     Inspired by Steve Jones' remarks in his introduction to The Emergence of the Digital Humanities, DH students Taylor Brown and Rebecca Parker designed this graphic to expand on the idea that it is "along such complex boundaries, the multi-petalled borders of intersecting academic disciplines and practices, that the most interesting developments in methods and new questions emerge" (Jones 6). This iteration places a great deal of emphasis on Textual Studies as the root system—or origin—of this dynamic and evolving field of study. From there the body of a flower emerges, the petals emblazoned with the intersecting disciplines that make up the Digital Humanities. One leaf attaches itself to this system, highlighting the symbiotic relationship between DH and Textual Studies, boasting the term "Techuality" to bridge the conceptual divide between print culture and the network. 


This graphic is based off Steve Jones' DH Model.
