Introductions to Digital Humanities – Religion
Ed. by Clivaz, Claire / Ess, Charles M. / Grieve, Gregory Price / Petersen, Kristian / Promey, Sally
Aims and Scope
The digital humanities is a well-established, fast-growing, multidisciplinary field producing computational applications and analytical models that enable new kinds of research in both the humanities and computer sciences. IDH Religion is a series of short introductions addressing specific areas of study at the intersections of digital humanities & religion, offering an overview of current methodologies, techniques, tools, and projects as well as defining challenges and opportunities for further research. Editors and contributors to these volumes explore the reciprocal impact of digital humanities research tools and the study of religion and provide overviews suitable for students as well as scholars of religion who may not be familiar with the digital humanities. Volumes in the series seek to integrate construction and analysis as mutually influential aspects of research in the digital humanities & religion and to explore the many ways in which digital media and the humanistic project present, explain, and challenge each other.
