The Duke Digital Humanities Initiative promotes new ways to engage in and learn about the use of technology in humanities scholarship and teaching. Our goal is to connect scholars, teachers, librarians, technologists, and practitioners from around campus. it is supported by the John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute, with additional support from Trinity College of Arts and Sciences, Duke Libraries, and other groups on campus.
The initiative website showcases completed and ongoing digital humanities Duke projects, spaces, and activities; promote workshops, events, and activities; and serve as a portal for exploring technology solutions for collecting, analyzing, interpreting and presenting humanities scholarship.
Our expanded idea of “digital humanities” includes digital transformations of scholarly practice and dissemination within the humanities, opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration and innovative teaching made possible by digital tools and methods, creative and experimental uses of technology for scholarly communications, and critical study of computational media and digital culture globally.
