Digital Humanities: About
Our engagement with digital humanities intentionally intersects interdisciplinary, multi-modal humanities research, teaching, learning, and publishing facilitated by digital methods and tools. Digital humanities both benefits from and is also critical of digital technology and culture.
This LibGuide is meant to both introduce Digital Humanities principles and practices, and also to introduce what Digital Humanities support is available at Virginia Tech University Libraries. This includes faculty and student DH projects, common tools and resources for conducting projects, an overview of concerns in DH, standards for evaluation, and a list of similar Centers focused on DH work.
What Is Digital Humanities?
Athenaeum Services for DH
Our Athenaeum is a partnership of the Libraries and the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences and Virginia Tech University Libraries, and is the physical hub of our DH community. We offer consultation and collaboration services for faculty, students, and staff interested in digital forms of research, teaching, and publication. These services include:
Research Consultations: Meet with us to discuss digital methods and tools for your research and pedagogy projects.
Tutorials & Training: We can help you locate and learn specific digital tools.
Presentations & Discussions: We host a range of seminars and workshops anchored in digital humanities approaches.
Advice & Referrals: We provide advice on grants and other funding opportunities.
Work Space: We have the Athenaeum Classroom, the Collaboration Room, and the Media Den available for project work, classes, meetings, and media recording and editing. The spaces are managed by the Digital Humanities Assistant, Sarah Mease (firstname.lastname@example.org).
