Digital Humanities

This page offers a basic overview of the wide field of Digital Humanities, albeit no more than a kind of web directory with some comments. There are three main sections: a general section with also attention to structures and organizations, a section on a number of themes, and a section with overviews of relevant projects.

I created the first version of this page in summer 2019 at my blog Glossae about a twelfth-century fragment of the Digest with early glosses. The overview seemed to fit here equally, with of course some adjustments.
