In a recent article on Inside Higher Ed., Steve Kolowich defines “digital humanities” as “a branch of scholarship that takes the computational rigor that has long undergirded the sciences and applies it to the study of history, language, art and culture.”  To this (and other definitions of digital humanities), I would add that the digital humanities must also consider the interface between digital and analog culture, between the pixels of our computer screens and the printed text of bound books.  What we do online has little meaning if it isn’t linked (literally or figuratively) to embodied practice.  What we are online only exists insofar as it is connected to what we are in the flesh.
