What are the digital humanities, what do they do, and how does digital history fit in? It’s a valid question and one that I think has several answers.Northwestern University’s “A Guide to Digital Humanities”confronts this question and attempts to make sense of the many different definitions that exist for Digital Humanities. The consensus seems to be that the Digital Humanities are centered on scholarship. The digital humanities are both a methodology and a presentation technique.

I’ll be using this website as my blog for Clio I this fall at George Mason University. I am a PhD student and Digital History Fellow at George Mason University. My research interest is primarily U.S. Women’s history with a particular focus on physical culture and beauty in the early twentieth century as well as Digital History. As part of the Digital History Fellowship I will be working in the Center for History and Media at GMU for the next few years.
