One Day International Conference on "Recent Trends in Digital Humanities: A Focus on Language and Literature"
Digital humanities is an interdisciplinary field that leverages digital tools, techniques, and methodologies to analyse, interpret, and explore the vast corpus of humanistic data, including literature, historical texts, and cultural artifacts. In the context of English studies, digital humanities holds significant importance. It enables scholars and researchers to engage with literary and linguistic texts in innovative ways, such as text mining and analysis, sentiment analysis, and data visualization, allowing for new insights into literary trends, linguistic patterns, and authorship attribution. It also promotes collaborative research and the digitization of rare or fragile texts, making them accessible to a wider audience. In addition, digital humanities enhances the teaching of English & Indian languages and literatures, offering interactive platforms, digital archives, and tools for text-based activities that enrich the learning experience. In essence, digital humanities enriches the study of English by providing new methodologies and resources, ultimately expanding our understanding of this rich and diverse field.
