What Digital Humanists Do “The digital humanities is what digital humanists do.” — Rafael Alvarado, Day of DH (reprinted in “Day of DH: Defining the Digital Humanities” in Debates in the Digital Humanities) Alvarado's point — that the field of digital humanities is varied and dynamic — is an excellent one.

The format of this post is shaped by (and owes a lot to) Miriam Posner's excellent “How did they make that?”, which really helped me when I was wrestling with the organization of what I wanted to say. This post is meant as a precursor/companion to Miriam's, because after teaching the DMDH workshops last year, I think that an even more basic introduction to some of the major DH activities can be helpful, especially for people who are a step before getting started — and figuring out whether getting started is something that they want to do.

Royal Society journal archive made permanently free to access 26 October 2011 Around 60,000 historical scientific papers are accessible via a fully searchable online archive, with papers published more than 70 years ago now becoming freely available.

Philosophical Transactions had to overcome early setbacks including plague, the Great Fire of London and even the imprisonment of Oldenburg, but against the odds the publication survived to the present day.
