Digital humanities – an academic field blazing new trails

 

Dear {NAME[std:Reader]},

Comparing literary motifs and revealing how texts have been handed down from generation to generation are just a couple of the applications for digital humanities. You can also read about an Italian mathematician who is researching a promising new theory, find out why a computer scientist believes that hunting for a parking space will soon be a thing of the past, learn about current funding programmes and discover our number of the month.

Number of the month
