Research Methods for the Digital Humanities introduces a range of approaches, which use computing tools to understand cultural material and apply interpretive theories to explore digital technologies.

We position the book among these debates and indicate some ways in which the book can be used by students and researchers. We end with an overview of the book’s chapters.
