Mission Statement

To promote digital humanities research and scholarship; extend grant opportunities to CHSS faculty, staff, and students; and provide advanced technological capabilities to facilitate this work.

The research supported by the Center uses digital technology to enhance the study of how people interact and how they conceive of being human.

With the malleability and transmissibility of digital information, the digital humanities have proven especially well suited to trans­disciplinary work, providing new opportunities to re-envision standard disciplinary forms. Thus, a primary goal of the CHSS Center for the Digital Humanities is to foster research collaborations across disciplines and contribute to the intellectual vibrancy of the university as a whole.

The Center will host events that spotlight the work of our faculty, provide a virtual and physical space for faculty to work on projects and research, and support several peer-reviewed projects each year. In addition, it will play a critical role in the formation of new academic programs in the digital humanities.
