The ubiquity of computing and cheap hardware in contemporary society have brought technology increasingly within the attention and reach of those working in the Humanities. In turn, many within the technology sector have become aware that understanding human nature is fundamental to understanding our interactions with technology.
A new generation of academics and practitioners working in such fields as Human-Computer Interaction, Digital Humanities and Web Science has arisen to tackle these issues. The pioneering nature of their agendas has resulted in work that could be better integrated into the mainstream of both sectors. InterFace provides a forum through which researchers can learn about the latest developments in both Technology and the Humanities in order to create groundbreaking new combinations between them.
