Frequently asked questions

PC Mag referred to Digital Humanities as “the most exciting field you’ve never heard of” in a post back in 2017. If it’s so exciting, why haven’t we heard of it? Probably because the digital humanities are happening all around us. 

Dr. Erin Laverick, Concordia University’s Digital Humanities Program Director, explains the emerging field this way: “The digital humanities prepares students not only in honing their content knowledge of a particular field such as history, theology, philosophy, English, and more. It also teaches them how to use and design digital tools. These tools allow people to research and explore ethical, social, and religious issues relevant to local and global communities.”
