As Humanidades Digitais:
Pequena coleção de definições
“Digital Humanities is an academic field self-reflexively looking at
the application of digital technology to humanities fields of enquiry”.
James Cummings, Oxford
“[Digital Humanities is a] quickly evolving interdisciplinary activity that
not only transfers to digital media but also radically extends the potential uses
and impacts of texts, cultural objects and other data”.
Paris O’Donnell, University College London
“The digital humanities, also known as humanities computing,
is a field of study, research, teaching, and invention concerned with
the intersection of computing and the disciplines of the humanities.
It is methodological by nature and interdisciplinary in scope.
It involves investigation, analysis, synthesis and presentation
of information in electronic form. It studies how these media affect
the disciplines in which they are used, and what these disciplines
have to contribute to our knowledge of computing”.
Matthew Kirschenbau, Maryland (*)
“My definition of Digital Humanities is
the creative analysis,synthesis and presentation of information
(both print and non-print)in digital environment.
Digital humanities investigate how digital media affect the disciplines
in which they are used. In practice, we are constantly redefining
not only the concept of humanities computing but also of computing itself.
In this manner, we come to understand how these disciplines
when recalibrated for a digital environment contribute to
our knowledge of computing; we also come to understand how
computing changes the way we acquire knowledge
and experience affect”.
Theodoros Chiotis, Oxford
“The digital humanities are just the humanities of the present moment”.
Alex Reid, Buffalo
