The Center for Digital Humanities is a research and innovation incubator for the computational study of the human condition. Through the organizational, analytical and visualization power of digital technologies, CDH provides creative, scholarly and educational support for researchers, teachers and community members seeking to more fully understand the world’s enduring and emerging needs.

Computational tools make it possible for humanities researchers to respond to the world’s enduring and emerging needs in ways that complement conventional scholarship, even as such tools invite inquiries that are scaled to capture and analyze the densest possible contexts and data sets.

Projects involving voices from the margins and Inclusive Excellence are especially encouraged by the Center,

along with other digital humanities initiatives that leverage the sorting, calculating, analyzing, and visualization power of computational tools and techniques.

Such tools and methods include: textual/data analysis, application creation, data visualization, GIS/mapping, augmented reality, virtual reality, immersive technology, digital storytelling, social networks, cultural informatics, 3-D scanning and motion capture.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Humanities Alliance released the following statement from its Executive Director Stephen Kidd on the August 2022 announcement of $31.5 million in grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities to support 226 humanities projects nationwide:

“The National Endowment for the Humanities will support the publication of the papers of historic figures, including six U.S. Presidents, through their Scholarly Editions and Translations program. Through summer institutes and workshops, the NEH will provide professional development opportunities for K-12 educators and higher ed faculty. And National Digital Newspaper Program grants will aid in the continued preservation of our nation’s history and culture through the digitization of local newspapers, including those that covered underrepresented histories.”
