Overview

arts-humanities.net home page

Arts-humanities.net is a project that encourages the use and understanding of digital tools and methods for the purpose of teaching and research in humanities computing. It acts as a stepping-stone to a wide variety of scholarly projects and articles that support and implement tools and technology associated with the digital arts and humanities. One of the project's main goals is to advance and promote the use of digital tools and methods for research and teaching in the humanities and arts. It also provides a networked community where members can participate in discussions, comment on work, contribute information, and peruse job postings. For more information, click on the following link to view an excellent presentation [1] by Dr Torsten Reimer from the Centre for e-Research, King’s College London.

Audience

Typically, the audience for this project is comprised of scholars and academics. However, arts-humanities.net encourages all visitors of the website to become members of a larger digital humanities family through a simple sign-on procedure. Membership allow users of the site to personalize their experience, add a project, create a profile, and add content. Members are part of a complex, diverse community that promotes tools and methods associated with humanities computing. Through dialogue, discussion, and the sharing of ideas, members are both contributors and audience. All the same, a casual visitor interested in the digital arts and humanities will enjoy the vast resources on the website and does not have to be a member to do so.
