Digital Humanities:

Cooperative Scheme between Humanities and Cultural Contents


Kim, Hyeon


This paper will argue that a cooperation is necessary between the fields of humanities contents and traditional humanities in exploring the potential of digital humanities.

Digital humanities refers to all new types of humanities research, education, and creative projects enabled by information technology. The definition is not limited to studies of traditional humanities topics using information technology as a research method; but it also includes completely new forms of humanities research realized by the use of computers.

Digital humanities can be beneficial to both humanities and cultural contents. For the traditional humanities studies, digital humanities will contribute to a wide dissemination of humanities knowledge in society; for cultural contents, digital humanities will provide the most efficient medium to acquire humanities knowledge for application in the cultural industry.

In order for the cultural contents to contain digital humanities, I suggest that education programs of the cultural contents departments should train some of their students in information technology to raise them as humanities knowledge coordinators. These coordinators should be equipped with not only the basic humanities knowledge, but also the information-processing skills to systemize the knowledge into digital contents. In case of Korea, where there is a shortage of professionals in the field of digital humanities, it is difficult for colleges to independently run digital humanities programs. But with open educational opportunities such as Digital Humanities Conference, it will be possible with just a few human resources to distribute knowledge and ideas to a large audience.
