DIGITAL CULTURAL HERITAGE MEETS DIGITAL HUMANITIES
Keywords: Digital Humanities, Digital Cultural Heritage, Topics, Challenges, Essay
Abstract. Digital Cultural Heritage and Digital Humanities are, historically seen, in focus of different communities as well as approaching different research topics and - from an organizational point of view - departments. However, are they that different? The idea of this joint article involving digital humanists and heritage researchers is to examine communities, concepts and research applications as well as shared challenges. Beyond a collection of problem-centred essays this is intended to initiate a fruitful discussion about commonalities and differences between both scholarly fields as well as to assess to which extent they are two sides of the same medal.
