Digital Humanities Community

At the University of Chicago, humanists who employ digital methods in their work are supported by and collaborate with the computing experts, librarians, web specialists, and other scholars who make up the Digital Humanities community. Faculty may receive guidance on their projects ranging from the small-scale—such as digital note card management—to the complex—such as an interactive map integrating historical GIS and encoded textual data. They find opportunities to connect with other scholars, as well as to expand their skill sets, whether they are currently engaged in digital humanities research or just beginning. More information can be found at the Digital Humanities website and blog.
