¶ 2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 I’m calling this post “People with Fingers and Toes” because when I announced on Facebook that I was starting a program in digital humanities, and I inevitably got the “what does that mean?” question and didn’t have a great answer, one of my friends suggested it was the study of humans’ digits–people with fingers and toes. That may not be an original joke, but it was new-to-me, and while I didn’t laugh myself silly over it as my friend Kate did, I thought it was cute. What I didn’t think was that it had any bearing on the topics I’d be exposed to in class.

Thing I learned: it’s not so easy to find an image of non-white appearing fingers and toes that’s licensed for reuse.
