In a time when academic institutions emphasize the development of tangible and marketable skills alongside traditional humanities training, the so-called “digital humanities” are rapidly gaining traction. Notwithstanding their swift growth, the definition of the field remains mutable and even contested. Are these approaches and methodologies practical, theoretical, or some combination of the two? Despite varying approaches to and understandings of what constitutes the field, trying to enter it can still feel like gaining access to an exclusive club. This session will explore how to become a part of existing digital humanities and scholarship efforts, as well as how to use the skill sets common within our professional community to lead and spearhead original work in and approaches to the field.
