Our Mission

  • To investigate how digital media alters the form of literature and the arts.
  • To help students understand and master new digital literacies.
  • To explore new digital tools for studying and analyzing texts and culture.

The minor in Digital Humanities allows students to explore how new media are changing every aspect of culture and society, including literature and the arts, libraries and archives, politics, law and education. Courses will explore topics such as:

  • the fate of reading and writing in the age of twitter, blogs and e-books
  • how social media is altering our individual and collective identities
  • how digital networks are changing popular culture
  • how to read a million books

Digital Humanities Summer Institute: Technologies East
May 17-20, 2017

The inaugural DHSITE was a huge success! Over 100 registrants came from near and far (including Montreal, Guelph, and Dallas, Texas!) to attend four days of workshops, and many more dropped in on our keynotes, panels and other events. And a very special thank-you goes out to all of our instructors, speakers, panelists and volunteers who helped make DHSITE a reality.

See photos from the conference here.

The next DHSITE will take place in July of 2018. Stay tuned!
