Benedict Anderson's 1983 study, Imagined Communities, explores how diverse peoples have been using literature (in particular, the novel) to construct and legitimize their national identities. Literature has provided a central means through which communal identity could be narrated and imagined; as such, it defined correlative personhood within distinct societies—rendering some narratives canonical in order to form and reinforce such claims, while excluding or "forgetting" counter-narratives.
In 2012, Stanley Fish posed the question: does the digital humanities offer new and better ways to realize traditional humanities goals? Or does the digital humanities completely change our understanding of what a humanities goal (and work in the humanities) might be? Practitioners within both the digital humanites and the humanities community more generally have offered many responses to Fish's musings, but as Margaret Kelleher has observed, there is yet little investigation regarding the opportunities and implications afforded the study of Irish history, literature, and culture by electronic advances.
