Digital Humanities and Open Access: An Interview with Brett Bobley of the NEH USA
"..digital humanities (or DH for short) is just an umbrella term – a term of convenience –that refers to a whole bunch of activities happening where the humanities interacts with technology.
Perhaps one skill that most (but not all) scholars may find helpful is the ability to work collaboratively. The vast majority of the DH grants we make are to teams of people from different disciplines working together .. more Internet-based humanities resources, databases, scholarly editions, and digital libraries that make incredible resources available for free."
