Open Thread: Digital Humanities Outside of the Research University

By Adeline Koh, Chronicle of Higher Ed

Digital humanities projects often require many resources, ranging from computers, software and servers, to a technical support staff and team, and people who are able to train faculty and students to learn various tools. At the same time, while digital pedagogy is an integral part of the digital humanities, emphasis on undergraduate research is less common in the field, which may make it more difficult for people in departments without graduate programs to see the ways in which they can potentially integrate the digital humanities into their undergraduate teaching. Some active in the digital humanities community have voiced some of this difficulty; particularly in relation to definitions of the digital humanities and its relationship to pedagogy and the obstacles to practicing DH in institutions with fewer resources.
