Welcome to Digital History

 

What is Digital History?

Digital History is concerned with the use of digital media and methods in the historical sciences. It is part of the digitization process in the historical sciences, which it actively shapes and at the same time critically reflects.

Digital History researches the digital representation of historical data and its special features, adapts digital methods for the historical sciences and develops them further. Above all, however, it reflects critically on these methods from the perspective of the discipline and, building on this, develops its own critique of digital data and methods.

In addition, Digital History can also deal with the history of digitality, the digital mediation of history as well as digital subject communication in the historical sciences.
