This is the best definition of digital humanities, although it's a difficult concept to explain, but this is quite well-explained and easy to understand.
I have selected three examples of a Digital humanities projects to make you understand easily what is this concept:
- The first project that I have selected is a it’s a free, mobile, and open source platform called Mukurtu, that allows people to manage and share digital cultural heritage in culturally relevant and ethically-minded ways. It's a grassroots project aiming to empower communities to manage, share, and exchange their digital heritage. They are committed to maintaining an open, community-driven approach to Mukurtu’s continued development. Their first priority is to help build a platform that fosters relationships of respect and trust. http://mukurtu.org/
- The second project which I have chosen is an interactive scholarly work that allows readers to examine the movement of goods and people in the Roman World through the creation of a historical transportation network model and its publication using interactive maps and information visualization. This is a digital humanities project related to history, and I personally think this one is very interesting. https://digitalhumanities.stanford.edu/projects/orbis
- Finally, the third project that I have selected is a layout analysis method to perform automatic text height estimation, even in the case of very noisy and damaged handwritten manuscripts. http://digitalhumanities.yale.edu/projects/athena
