4Humanities is a platform for advocacy of the humanities that draws on the expertise of the international digital humanities community. Digital methods now play a key role in showing why the humanities must be part of any vision of a future society. Viewpoints and projects presented by 4Humanities and its local chapters—statements, videos, infographics, resources, etc.—use today’s means to shout out for the humanities. (More on our mission…)
