What is Digital Humanities?
A nexus of fields (humanities, social sciences, computer sciences, arts) exploring how we live as citizens, professionals, and scholars in a networked world.
Supported by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Tri-Co Digital Humanities initiative (Tri-Co DH) is a research and teaching collaboration of Bryn Mawr, Haverford, and Swarthmore Colleges. We study the uses of new media and computing technologies in humanities-based scholarship and teaching, across the liberal arts. We seek to understand the expertise students, faculty and staff need as citizens and professionals in a networked world.
The consortium serves as a clearing house for new initiatives, funding:
• faculty research (including college-university collaborations)
• training in new research tools and practices
• curriculum development (including college-university collaborations)
• undergraduate internships and research fellowships
