On Thursday, I’m giving a talk on Digital Humanities and Digital History to a group of new Public History graduate students.  I’m assuming that they know little to nothing of digital humanities.  So, I thought that I would summarize what digital humanities looks like as a practice when graphed against developments in web technologies (with which I assume they are more familiar).  The graph is not meant to be definitive, nor is it meant to summarize my own views about the trajectory (good, bad, or otherwise) of DH.  Rather, it’s meant to summarize some predominant ideas in the field as well as to provide some avenues for reflection on the relationship technology and scholarship.  I would be very interested in any suggestions.  Thanks.  Jason.
