ROLLO, MARIA FERNANDA. Challenges and responsibilities of digital humanities: preserving memory, valuing heritage, promoting and disseminating knowledge. The Memory For All program. Estud. hist. (Rio J.) [online]. 2020, vol.33, n.69, pp.19-44.  Epub Mar 06, 2020. ISSN 2178-1494.

Why do digital humanities exist and what are they for? There are no “digitals” associated with other scientific areas. What singularizes the digital humanities? By admitting this statement, this article highlights six fundamental axes through which the contribution of the digital humanities is most evident and relevant to scientific activity and society in general. The Memory for All program, developed from the humanities field but intrinsically multidisciplinary, intensive user of digital tools, summons the aforementioned axes, illustrating digital humanities beyond the application of digital in scientific research of the humanities field.

Keywords : Digital humanities; Memory and digital heritage; Open science; Citizen science; Communities and cultural heritage; Collaborative research.
