Digital Humanities (DH) are increasingly important in a number of disciplines. In this panel, MU faculty will share their experiences incorporating digital humanities methods and techniques into teaching and learning. Not only is it important for students to understand DH for future job skills, but also because these techniques open up new ways of understanding their disciplines and the world at large.   Like the humanities as a whole, the boundaries of DH are, and will remain, fuzzy and encompass a wide range of practices across a variety of disciplines. The term will perforce have a different resonance for an art historian, a literature scholar, a geographer, a historian, and a musician, but all may be digital humanists.

(A number of good examples and resources are linked from   In this session, we’ll look at a how digital humanities resources and skills are being used in MU’s classrooms, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Heather Moulaison discusses how to teach student about text encoding to make it accessible to data mining. Text encoding is a vital skill for graduate students as they contemplate working on existing DH projects or contemplate their own work.
