The Evolution of Humanities

presented by Bryan Carter, Africana Studies Program 

The Humanities have gone digital! As the number of low-cost or free mobile and desktop applications flood the market, the field of Digital Humanities is becoming more exciting. Scholars and students can now accomplish tasks that only a few years ago were either not possible or required complicated coding or high- end computing power. The range of these applications provides access to digital communications, collaboration, advanced visualization, data storage and retrieval at unprecedented levels. Digital Humanists are incorporating these tools into teaching, research, and creative expression, enabling people to experience the Humanities like never before.
