    Abstract:
    Over the past decade or so, digital humanities discussions and initiatives have become more socially oriented. Many digital humanities practitioners are reconsidering their role in the public sphere, both in regard to the often biased structures they work in, as well as how they can better collaborate and share with wider communities. This is not to say that the digital humanities have accomplished some advanced degree of public engagement, diversity, or inclusion. They haven’t. Rather, a disciplinary turn toward matters of social justice, collaboration, and social media acknowledges a changing tide of consciousness around how an academic field is constituted, as well as what its role is (or could be) in the larger social sphere.
