Innovations in Digital Humanities

The Humanities Institute supports faculty who are: (1) working on digital humanities projects that are independent of other institute programming; or (2) seeking support for training in the digital humanities. The Institute can cover a range of expenses including, in full or in part, software (not hardware), attendance at Digital Humanities workshops and other training opportunities, and consultation with other scholars working in related areas in the digital humanities. Support provided on a rolling basis as funds allow; priority deadline in May for projects during the following academic year.
