Critical Approaches to Digital Humanities Critical Approaches to Digital Humanities MATX PhD Program Virginia Commonwealth University mailing link



Since the early 2000s, the Digital Humanities (DH) have been celebrated as a rebirth of, or even a times a replacement for, other forms of humanistic inquiry. While many DH events focus on the digital projects and tools DH scholars produce, this symposium offers an opportunity for scholars and students to focus specifically on DH's impact, both positive and negative, on the humanities.
