Digital Humanities and Jewish Studies: a View from the U.S.
A review of digital activity related to Jewish Studies in the United States since the
early 1990s would demonstrate that the intersection of information technology and
Jewish Studies is well established and evolving. The evolution of what is called Digital
Humanities (DH) has not had such a clear or straight trajectory. Services and tools such
as mailing-lists, academic portals, large digital libraries and archival digitization projects
were the dominant elements most Jewish Studies scholars thought of when imagining or
describing digital Jewish Studies. These have been well documented in numerous articles,
newsletters, and the blogosphere. But scholars are now learning that as the numbers of
digital tools and media increase, and Jewish Studies faculty and researchers partner with
information technologists, the possibilities for large research questions and discourse
that define the scholarly experience can grow exponentially.
