Abstract and Keywords

This chapter traces the emergence of an interdisciplinary field, the digital humanities, in response to a complex set of recent personal, ethical, psychological, social, cultural, spiritual, and political concerns, many generated by technology, that require the insights of humanistic inquiry. Drawing from examples of digital humanities praxis including FemTechNet, HASTAC, and the Futures Initiative, this chapter focuses on the pedagogical implications of the digital humanities as an interdisciplinary field. A specific case study, “Mapping the Futures of Higher Education,” is used to explore some of the implications of interdisciplinary, networked pedagogy. The chapter concludes with an analysis of the administrative collaborations and conditions necessary to facilitate this interdisciplinary work.

Keywords: digital humanities, interdisciplinarity, pedagogy, connected learning, Futures Initiative, technology
