Digital Humanities Consultations

The Digital Scholarship Associate offers consultations to UF students, instructors, and researchers, and connects them with other digital humanities experts and projects.

What is Digital Humanities?

Digital humanities, sometimes shortened to DH, is a highly collaborative area of scholarship at the intersection of digital technology and the humanities disciplines.

Digital humanists use methods such as textual analysis, location mapping, and interactive online projects to enhance answers to questions about human societies and cultures.

They also critique technology by examining the human labor, politics, and socio-cultural issues created and affected by digital tools and systems.

This two-fold approach explores what it means to be human within and alongside digital systems.


Your Digital Humanities Consultant

The Digital Scholarship Associate, Tiffany C. Esteban, welcomes UF students, instructors, and researchers to discuss all aspects of their interest in digital humanities.

Whether you’re starting to form an idea for a project, trying to manage an existing one, or looking for ways to connect your ideas to a larger community of experts, she is glad to consult with you.

She can help you:

  • Develop a working concept and plan for a digital humanities project
  • Gain basic technical knowledge of digital humanities tools
  • Build course content around digital humanities
  • Explore connections between the humanities, social sciences, and digital technology

She is available to give presentations or facilitate discussions for classes and campus groups upon request.

She is especially interested in introducing digital humanities to undergraduate students. This work includes topics such as algorithmic bias, the history of digital humanities as a discipline, and intersections between digital humanities and information science. She amplifies the work of BIPOC in digital humanities through her client-centered consultations, information science instruction, and UF Digital Humanities Working Group discussions.

She also manages the Library West Scott Nygren Scholars Studio, a digital humanities instruction and meeting space.
