Digital Humanities Initiative

The Duke Digital Humanities Initiative (DHI) promotes new ways to engage in and learn about the use of technology in humanities scholarship. Our goal is to connect scholars, teachers, librarians, technologists, and practitioners from around campus. The DHI is sponsored by the FHI, with additional support from Trinity College of Arts and Sciences, Duke Libraries, and other groups on campus.

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.
