Abstract / Description of output

This essay outlines the history and context of the development of Digital Humanities (DH) in Russia, demonstrating various influences at play. We link the quantitative methods used to trace previous trends in scholarship, including mathematics and sciences; and modeling data and processes in the humanities. Each country is individual in the societal and intellectual contexts which encourage a field to emerge. This means that although the history of that field in various countries may look similar to outsiders, we are able to identify the lineage of intellectual approaches which continue to influence its methods and research.
