      But humanities research teaches us about the world beyond the classroom, and beyond a job. Humanities scholars explore ethical issues, and discover how Author: Gretchen Busl. - Professor Ray Siemens, Canada Research Chair in Humanities Computing, University of Victoria, BC, Canada 'Defining Digital Humanities by what it does rather than wrestling with definitions of what it is, the essays in this vibrant anthology are reports of substantive engagements with the intellectual dimensions of technological tools.

    Humanities Computing is led by Michael Wills and divided into three units, each with a distinct area of responsibility.

    Consider a rough intellectual map of humanities computing (Fig. 1). At the center of this map is a large ‘‘methodological commons’’ of computational techniques shared among the disciplines of the humanities and closely related social sciences, e.g., database design, text analysis, numerical analysis, imaging, music information retrieval, communications. THE INQUIRY PROCESS IN THE HUMANITIES The humanities, such as classical and modern languages and lit-erature, history, and philosophy, have as an overall goal the exploration and explanation of the human experience. Some would include the fine arts (music, art, dance, and drama) in the humanities, but others view the arts as a separate category.

Digital humanities (DH) is an area of scholarly activity at the intersection of computing or digital technologies and the disciplines of the includes the systematic use of digital resources in the humanities, as well as the analysis of their application.

DH can be defined as new ways of doing scholarship that involve collaborative, transdisciplinary, and computationally engaged. Research in the humanities is frequently misunderstood. When we think of research, what immediately comes to mind for many of us is a laboratory setting, with white-coated scientists hunched over microscopes.
