A Year of Digital Humanities: 54 Resources to Explore

dhawards2015As every year since 2012, the Digital Humanities Awards 2015 produced a list of resources published during 2015. 54 resources were nominated by 140 people and the result of the vote (1862 voters) was made public a few days ago. As these awards are intended to be “an awareness raising activity, to help put interesting DH resources in the spotlight and engage DH users (and general public) in the work of the community”, and as I personally nominated a resource (and got 2 of my blog posts nominated, thank you!), this post encourage you to browse them and discover new projects, tools and blogs!
