Digital Humanities Introduction


Digital Humanities: The humanities in and for a digital age


Innovation and the Humanities“A lot of people in our industry haven't had very diverse experiences. So they don't have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one's understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have.” Steve Jobs in Wired magazine February, 1996


“Open Resources, Open Possibilities” UF Mission StatementTeaching is a fundamental purpose of this university at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Research and scholarship are integral to the educational process and to the expansion of our understanding of the natural world, the intellect and the senses. Service reflects the university's obligation to share the benefits of its research and knowledge for the public good. The university serves the nation's and the state's critical needs by contributing to a well-qualified and broadly diverse citizenry, leadership and workforce. The University of Florida must create the broadly diverse environment necessary to foster multi-cultural skills and perspectives in its teaching and rese arch for its students to contribute and succeed in the world of the 21st century.
