    To me, the digital humanities require an active engagement with, and constant questioning of the digital tools we use for research and pedagogy. Not just making online projects but knowing to use them, pushing the boundaries of what it means to read, write, and disseminate knowldge. A wonderful opportunity to make scholarship playful and innovative, taking advantage of material culture in immaterial ways.

    I have often wondered why there is still a distinction between Humanities and Digital Humanities, seeing as most (if not all) fields within that broad umbrella do seem to employ/deploy various digitalia in support of our disciplines. Personally, I define Digital Humanities as integrating tools (online, software, hardware, etc.) in support of research, publication/communication, and development of topics outside of mathematics and the physical sciences.

    The application of Digital Humanities varies from institution to institution (and from practitioner to practitioner), but I think that one idea unites them all: making images, content, and context open to the public and accessible in new ways. Even if the underlying computational structures and methodologies differ, this idea unifies.

    To me, DH is about making connections between people, ideas, and fields; the creative production of new ideas, questions, analyses, and technology; and engagement with a community that extends beyond academia.

    You say potato, I say potato. Let's call the whole thing off. (Or, more seriously: I "define" DH with some reluctance. We're an interdisciplinary, inter-professional community of practice; we develop and test an evolving set of methods; we undertake fresh work in the humanities and explore ways of making that work visible.)

    The digital humanities are an intervention. The space of the humanities has entered a period of rapid technological change which has forced scholars to become aware of the tools that they use for understanding their texts. This situation has inspired a new, more robust discourse centered on both the tools that humanities use and the knowledge that humanists produce. The Digital Humanities (Digital History, Digital Archaeology, et c.) embrace techne as it informs their epistemology.

    I think of DH as anything that includes any sort of humanistic inquiry that uses digital technology. We've all been digital for some time now, and DHers are just those who embrace this cyber-life most enthusiastically.
