How we work: A critical approach to program development to serve library/dh partnerships Institutional Repository Document uri icon


  • Science and Digital Humanities exert influences on one another, particularly as practices and tools developed in the sciences are imagined, borrowed, and manipulated by DH, but also as practices and insights from the humanities are applied to scientific inquiry. With this poster, we present an analysis of studies of how digital humanists and scientists work, testing the oft-referenced distinctions and similarities claimed between science and DH models and interrogating the ways that scientific disciplinarity affects digital humanities processes and products. Our research critically evaluates the comparisons drawn between epistemological and labor models in DH and the sciences.
