Digital Humanities and Low Countries Culture
(Reinier Salverda) THE LOW COUNTRIES - 2016, № 24, PP. 274-283
Michel Foucault may have predicted the end of the humanities, but today Digital Humanaties, the digital revolution and the virtual world are offering a new beginning. In the process, our humanities research and how this is being done will undoubtedly be transformed. What will not change, however, is the age-old question: What about us humans? In this respect, the significance of digital humanities is that they offer new ways of investigating our many and very diverse human faculties, talents, endeavours, ambitions and desires, our own mental makeup, along with our cultural heritage, languages, storytelling, literature, imagination, and so on.
