[en] The digital interferes in multiple ways in our current day practice of
history. This article argues that it not only impacts the way we search, store,
analyze, and visualize historical sources and how we tell our stories, but the
dynamic, real-time, and connected nature of digital research infrastructures
and the Internet has a deep influence on how we think about history. As a new
temporal regime, the digital age shapes our memory practices and changes the
way we imagine and experience the past. By mobilizing the concept of digital
hermeneutics, the chapter proposes a conceptual framework that helps to understand
the various interferences of the „D“ and to use the critical potential of
humanities to deconstruct and contextualize our data-driven present.
