Digital Health Humanities: An Overview of Methods, Tools, Archives, and Applications Online
Digital Health Humanities is an emerging domain that includes leveraging digital methods and tools to critically analyze data, often from archival health sciences materials, in the pursuit of humanistic research. As such, its application can be useful for researchers in not just the humanities, but also for those seeking to ensure humanistic perspectives are represented in social and health sciences inquiry and research findings.
This overview session will include a presentation articulating the scope and research opportunities afforded by Digital Health Humanities approaches and will share how UCSF is supporting research in this domain. Additionally, attendees will be provided with a guided walkthrough of various digital methods and tools used to analyze datasets - including and especially “archives as data” - that can situate research on the human experience of health and disease in historical, social, and cultural contexts. Attention will be paid to describing new and ongoing opportunities for researchers to evaluate, learn, and apply Digital Health Humanities approaches to their work.
Note that this session will be recorded with a link to the recording made available for later viewing.
