Fashion History meets Digital Humanities

Hey guys,

I’m uploading a post from the blog Historic Dress that reflects on the relationship can exist between Fashion and Digital Humanities. It’s about a contribution that Historic Dress co-conspirator Jon Berndt Olsen gave to University of Massachusetts Amherst for the new First-Year seminar, “From Cotton to Kevlar: Fashion History meets Digital Humanities.”
I needed to post this because sometime I lose track of how DH can me interesting in every field of reality, especially mine. What’s DH’s impact in areas where it is not immediately connected?

The aim of this reading is  to try out some ideas that animate Historic Dress while also introducing students to digital approaches to humanities research and interpretation.
