Research output: Journal article publicationJournal articleAcademic researchpeer-review


Digital humanities (DH), which first started as the compilation, digitization,
and visualization of ample amounts of archival works of particular writers
and artists (such as the projects of Rossetti Archive and William Blake
Archive) at the beginning of the twenty-first century, has witnessed exponential
expansion over the last decade. The recent rapid advances in modern
computing and information technology have given rise to more new digital
tools and methods, including hypermedia, data visualization, text mining
and digital mapping, and so on, all of which have been applied in DH to
foster systematic and scholarly study of these digital resources. Such a study
has a distinctive interdisciplinary nature.
