Digital humanities (DH) is a multi- and interdisciplinary field as well as a set of methods and approaches that combine computational methods with humanistic inquiry. Digital humanities practice often also involves critical evaluation and reflection on the tools that enable the work.
The resources linked below range from resources at Stanford (and beyond) for conducting and publishing DH research to information about participating in the DH community.
Resources at Stanford
- Stanford Libraries' Center for Interdisciplinary Digital Research (CIDR) provides workshops and consultations on a broad range of topics related to digital humanities and social sciences.
- Data Management Services in the Libraries assists Stanford researchers with the organization, management, and curation of research data to enhance its preservation and access now and into the future.
