Our Digital Humanities services and programming brings together an interdisciplinary, collaborative community including faculty, academic staff, and students from across campus to explore the digital humanities, investigate ideas for new projects, and contribute to ongoing projects. We provide space and support to share ideas, skills, gain access to appropriate equipment and software, and to discover interdisciplinary, collaborative opportunities for researchers at all levels of expertise and interest in the field. Everyone is invited to participate, either by attending talks and workshops, proposing programming and projects, or just chatting about your work and ours.

We look forward to the 2022-23 academic year, and encourage ideas for engaging computational research in the humanities and investigating how digital tools and methods impact teaching, research, and community representation.
