Defining Digital Humanities (2013) is the title of Melissa Terras, Julianne Nyhan and Edward Vanhoutte’s collection of essays on the topic. Yet, in the last decade, administrators, colleagues, and students continue to ask questions, seeking a clearer understanding of the term “digital humanities.” How might we continue to explore the geography of the “digital” landscapes in the humanities in the attempt to offer clearer definitions and/or potential applications available through digital research in the humanities? This panel invites abstracts for papers or project presentations offering further insight initiated by scholars, including those listed above, with varying definitions of how the “digital” shapes, influences, and perhaps innovates study in the humanities.
