Our Cultural Commonwealth

The report Our Culture Commonwealth has been prepared by the American Council of Learned Societies with an aim of alerting our scholars of the challenges that we are facing in the advancement of humanistic studies in view of the emerging technology. It has specifically looked at the challenges emerging in response to the rising role of digital technologies in support of humanistic knowledge. Since the 1990s, the internet has emerged as one of the most important tools in practicing humanity and social sciences. As the computer and internet use touch every aspect of our society, its penetration to the humanities and social science world has been relatively slowly yet it appears more fast than what we had expected, as compared to the impact it has had on the technical world.
