Digital humanities scholars are a diverse group whose work is the result of cross-pollination among humanities scholarship, computer science, and digital media. Many well-known digital humanities projects apply tools borrowed from computer science—such as data-mining or geographic information systems—to works of literature, historical documents, and other materials traditionally in the domain of the humanities. What do digital humanities scholars see as the potential of this interdisciplinary field? And what are the important theoretical and methodological contributions digital humanities can offer to both the humanities and the sciences Panelists: Daniel J. Cohen, Associate Professor of History and Director of the Center for History and New Media (CHNM) at George Mason University; Federica Frabetti, Senior Lecturer in the Communication, Media, and Culture Program at Oxford Brookes University; and Dino Buzzetti, recently retired from the Department of Philosophy at the University of Bologna.
