The mission of the Digital Humanities Program at Marshall University is to explore and deepen the relationship between humanities disciplines and digital tools and technologies.
Our students receive a multidisciplinary education from award-winning and grant-funded faculty from colleges throughout the university. Thus, we prepare a new generation of professionals who are both humanistically and digitally savvy.
The goals of the DH program include:
- Applying technical and critical thinking skills to conduct digital projects that bridge the humanities and other disciplines;
- Applying theoretical frameworks and research techniques to interpret the key issues raised by the digital humanities;
- Applying, analyzing, and creating knowledge around problems in digital humanities interdisciplinary studies;
- Analyzing the impact of digital technologies on humanities research methods and approaches;
- Fostering collaborations among faculty, staff, and students; and
- Diffusing DH methods and tools into the teaching and research communities at Marshall University and beyond.
