Description

The Digital Humanities Initiative (DHI) consists of both a Digital Humanities Lab with associated digital humanities courses and the strengthening of the university’s digital humanities research core. The DHI reinforces the institutional commitment to digital humanities in promoting innovative humanities research and in pursuing external funding.

The Digital Humanities Laboratory (DHL) provides a central location for digital humanities resources, the capacity to archive and disseminate digital research and research products, and the capability to train faculty, students and staff in digital humanities and custom digital applications.

The DHL serves a permanent institutional solution toward reinforcing the value of digital humanities research. The DHL promotes faculty collaboration across multiple departments in addressing cutting edge topics and research in digital humanities.

The Digital Humanities Initiative also strengthens the University of Georgia’s digital humanities research core through specific digital research enterprises like the Linguistic Atlas Project, classical art and architecture collections, American Civil War letters, virtual vaudeville and eHistory.org. eHistory involves a number of projects including Pox Americana, IndianNation, Born Unfree: Stories of the Last Generation of American Slaves, and From Civil War to Civil Rights in Georgia. All of these DHI projects exploit new technologies to the benefit of humanities research by engaging scholars and the broader public as full partners and collaborators in building digital humanities resources.
