In SpecLab (2009), Johanna Drucker explains that the digital humanities does not simply entail “the creation of new electronic environments for access to traditional or born-digital materials. It is the study of ways of thinking differently about how we know what we know, and how the interpretive task of the humanist is redefined in these changed conditions” (xii). What resonates with me about Drucker’s definition is how she conceives of DH both in terms of its epistemological function, and in terms of its function for us as critics—and I will add to her definition, as teachers as well.
