Pedagogy: Critical Approaches to Teaching Literature, Language, Composition, and Culture Differences ↪

An innovative journal that aims to build and sustain a vibrant discourse around teaching in English studies.

What is digital humanities (DH)?

Digital Humanities brings humanities inquiry into dialogue with digital tools, platforms, databases and other informational structures in order to advance knowledge and develop solutions for complex problems. Digital Humanities is praxis oriented and emphasizes collaborative, team-based projects that engage in the building blocks of digital activity, such as archiving, curation, analysis, coding, editing, visualization, mapping, modelling, versioning, prototyping, and failing. At the University of Toronto, we have an inclusive agenda that encompasses interpretive or theoretical work on digitality.

To learn more about the many definitions of DH, visit the Hunter Library Research Guide or the Digital Humanities Manifesto 2.0 by Todd Presner and Jeffrey Schnapp.

What is critical digital humanities?

Critical Digital Humanities is an emerging, intersectional field that emphasizes questions of power, social justice, and critical theory in making and analyzing digital technologies. This is a version of digital humanities that places antiracist, decolonial, feminist, and queer/trans/non-binary work at its core, and which understands our current historic shift in digital technology as an opportunity for social and political transformation. Critical Digital Humanities foregrounds creative praxis, co-creation, public engagement, and community-based research.

What does a DH project involve?

A DH project can take many different forms. When applying digital technology to humanities scholarship, some of the most common methods include data visualization, text editing or analysis, transcription, digital publishing, digitization of archival material or mapping. A DH project could also involve bringing humanities methodologies to the digital world in order to study video games, digital representation, accessibility, algorithmic bias, or artificial intelligence. In almost all cases, digital humanities research requires collaboration with programmers, archivists, digital scholarship librarians, data scientists, and/or others.
