Digital Humanities

Who are we?

Housed within the Center for Textual Studies and Digital Humanities, our Digital Humanities MA program offers training in the practice and critical study of the intersections between the humanities and computational sciences. Our interdisciplinary program offers rigorous hands-on training in digital research projects within a theoretical framework that explores the critical, social, and ethical contexts for thinking about Digital Humanities research and applications. As one of the few programs of its kind in the country, our program offers a unique opportunity to study at the intersection of faculty teaching/research and student research/learning.

Our digital humanists explore questions such as...

How can we:

  • Preserve and make open-access understudied texts that might otherwise sit in archives?
  • Reconstruct the history of a poem?
  • Archive born-digital texts for future researchers, historians, and the public?
  • Digitize an ethnographic collection in an ethical way?
