The field of Digital Humanities is changing the way historians
do their research. Historians use tools to query larger data sets and
they apply a di↵erent methodology to tackle certain research questions.
In this paper we will discuss two propositions on the necessity of adapting
to and taking advantage of the technological changes: 1) Digital Humanities
tools are not the enemy of the historian, but they need to be used
in a proper way. This requires historians to make ‘tool criticism’ part
of their methodological toolkit; 2) Digital Humanities tools allow for a
more data-driven and bottom-up approach to historical research. This
eliminates some of the historian’s preconceptions that are inevitably part
of more traditional historical research.
