Welcome to the Digital Humanities Network, supported by the German Studies Association! The goal of this network is to present and discuss humanities research employing digital tools by inviting participating GSA members to share and discuss their knowledge about tools, methods, and, importantly, about theoretical issues central to practicing and researching digital humanities. This may include text analysis, data mining, visualization, modeling and simulation, geo-spatial inquiries and mapping, multimedia or digital storytelling, information or knowledge design, network analysis, and interface design in combination with the history of media, media theory, digital cultures and game studies.
The GSA Digital Humanities Network thereby acknowledges that digital humanities as a field of inquiry emphasizes principles and concepts that will transfer across software programs, platforms and disciplines. It also seeks to keep in mind that digital technologies will emerge and transform over time, and that they are accompanied by questions about their impact on and integration into our cultural and everyday knowledge and practices, particularly as they apply to German Studies.
