The Digital Humanities program at Maynooth University usesĀ Modern Language Association (MLA) formatting for academic and scholarly work, and therefore this blog will do so as well.

As for the term “Digital Humanities” itself, there does not appear to be any agreed-upon standard with regards to capitalization and abbreviation. While a majority of scholars and researchers do indeed capitalize Digital Humanities, this practice is not universal. Likewise, Digital Humanities is occasionally, but not always, shortened to the abbreviation “DH,” often when striving for brevity.

For the purposes of this blog, I will capitalize Digital Humanities, unless the context makes the use of lowercase letters appropriate. Additionally, I will on occasion use the abbreviate DH, though this will always be preceded by a first instance defining the abbreviation (e.g., “Digital Humanities (DH)…”).
