Changing Humanities and Smart Application of Digital Technologies is a collection of research articles relevant to digital humanities (the use of technology to advance our understanding of the humanities). A key aim of this volume is to demonstrate the potential of using computer technology to creating new humanistic knowledge-based systems through innovative applications. Readers will learn about applications in digital humanities through 11 chapters which explore a variety of computer applications in education and social research. Topics covered in the volume range from the role of internet in understanding, to the more technical domains of GIS and mobile device applications in studying religion, literature, geography, history and games. This volume is a useful reference for scholars and graduate students involved in humanities and social science research, as it provides readers with creative insights into digital technology applications to build on their research goals.


It is with pleasure that I take advantage of the opportunity to write the foreword for this book, which is the work and effort of scholars to explore new ground and participate in research that infuses innovative methods and thinking into academic investigations around people’s lives.

Innovative contributions are being made in literature, in history, in geography, in religion, and in education. These contribution are providing the basis for new ways of understanding the contextual nature of technological application practices emerging from humanities research and instruction.

Not only is this book of great value to the digital humanities researchers, but it is equally important and instructive to scholars who are interested in the interdisciplinary research from diverse fields. I hope this book will inspire you to pursue innovative research within existing culture.
