Professor of Formal Philosophy at University of Copenhagen Vincent F. Hendricks writes in The Conversation on the “pervasive narrative about the decline of the humanities”. Vincent speaks about those who believe in the value of the humanities and what they often lend on to support the digital humanities field such as supporting successful business stories and graduates who study being equipped with cross cultural understanding in a global world and analytical skills.

What’s interesting about this article is Vincent describes those methods as more “defensive” tactics and no longer as necessary. Rather taking an “offensive” approach may be more useful to set new standards for the digital humanities environment in the information age. What does that look like?
