The DHI supports a portfolio of digital projects led by faculty, staff and students from across the university. For more information, see the sub menu.
If you are interested in proposing a project to be affiliated with the DHI, see Proposing Projects.
You will need to submit:
- a title for the project
- a description (250-350 words),
- at least one related image that we could use on the website (a few would be preferable), and
- a photo and short bio (100-150 words) for the project leader(s) and anyone else (include students) that should be listed as a primary collaborator.
You can submit these materials by completing this survey.
No, project proposals are accepted at any time. However, they are reviewed and approved by our Advisory Committee, which meets once in the fall and once in the spring. For your proposal to be included in the agenda packet for these meetings, we need your submission by Sept. 15 (fall semester) or Jan. 15 (spring semester). In the past, we have also approved proposed projects via email during summer sessions. Materials received by April 15 may be considered for summer approval.
We will consider any project that employs technological tools and/or methods in the study or analysis of materials from the humanities, broadly understood. In the past, many of our projects have in disciplinary terms more closely aligned with the social sciences and fine arts, but have been considered relevant to the work of the DHI for any of the following reasons: because they employ technology to help us understand the human condition, because they they point to new possibilities for interdisciplinary scholarship, because they suggest new models for collaboration--an idea at the center of much DH work.
The DHI hosts a portfolio page for each affiliated project on its website.
The DHI can connect project leaders with others on campus who can assist them in conceptualizing, and designing a project, as well as managing its lifecycle and learning needed technologies. Much of this support comes from the Center for Instruction and Research Technology (CIRT), as well as from faculty and staff located across campus, students with specialized expertise, and others. The DHI can also help project leaders to connect with student interns who can receive academic credit for helping to design and execute their projects.
The DHI currently cannot provide financial support to affiliated projects. Through our development subcommittee, however, we can facilitate conversations about grants and other types of support, and, through our relationship with the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP), can help project leaders prepare and submit applications.
