Welcome to Humanities 3.0: Tooling Up for Digital Humanities.
This web site is designed to be a starting place, an entryway for scholars interested in beginning to explore the possibilities for digital tools, programs, and methods to empower and enhance their scholarship in the humanities. These essays and links are only a brief glimpse into the vast field of potential in the digital humanities, but we hope that they point outward to the field’s many possibilities.
Please join us for our accompanying weekly workshop series being offered at Stanford during the spring of 2011.
In the coming weeks, we will be adding essays about spatial analysis, databases, visualization, and pedagogy. We hope you will help us in this endeavor by commenting on and making suggestions for improvements in these introductory essays. Each essay, indeed each section of each essay has a place to leave comments and discuss a particular set of methods, tools and ideas. There is also a standalone discussion section at the end of the entire site for general discussion and comments about “Humanities 3.0″ – a self-consciously playful title suggesting the potential for new scholars to take up and use these tools in their work.
This web site is produced by Tooling Up for Digital Histories, a collaboration between the Spatial History Project and the Computer Graphics Lab at Stanford University and many others to compile, create, and share new tools for digital research in the humanities at Stanford and beyond. The collaboration has been funded by the Presidential Fund for Innovation in the Humanities at Stanford.
