By Ninja Steinbach-Hüther and Thomas Efer. It is hard, if not impossible, to define Digital Humanites as a whole. The term can be used to characterize a set of innovative research methods and tools that link qualitative and quantitative methods.
Category: The Digital Humanities Interface
Digital Humanities (DH) is an innovative field of research that connects humanities, social sciences and computer sciences, and utilizes qualitative and quantitative methods. The central aim of the TRAFO series “The Digital Humanities Interface” is to give voice to people who are involved in the highly interdisciplinary and transdiciplinary field of DH from both the humanities and the informatics side of the field, thus bridging the divide between those who conceptualize and those who program. This series sheds light on those working at this interface, and we ask what these new techniques and forms of cooperation mean for transregional research. The series is edited by Ninja Steinbach-Hüther (Leibniz-Institute for Regional Geography (IFL) and SFB 1199, Leipzig University) and Thomas Efer (Leipzig University and Sächsische Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Leipzig (SAW)).
