Welcome to Digital Humanities at UO!

 

What is DH at UO?

Many members of our community have longstanding interests in digital humanities and media studies–two fields that sometimes overlap.

The New Media and Culture Certificate (NMCC) offers a graduate certificate in new media scholarship. This certificate program is a collaborative venture among the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Architecture and Allied Arts, and the School of Journalism and Communication.

The Digital Scholarship Center (DSC), located on the first floor of Knight Library, has long supported UO faculty in the development of digital scholarship. Based on a foundation of access, sharing, and preservation, the DSC provides digital asset management, digital preservation, training, consultations, and tools for digital scholarship. To set up a consultation meeting follow this link.

The new Undergraduate Minor in DH will launch officially in Winter 2018. The minor is housed in English, although it’s open to everyone across campus. The DH minor will integrate traditional methods of studying literature and with new technologies. The minor will provide opportunities to study literary culture thorugh the creation of digital archives, maps, games, and online publications. The emphasis of the minor falls on creation as an analytical method. At the same time, the DH minor will focus on the growing significance of the humanities and literary culture in the public sphere.  It will therefore encourage public engagement and applied humanities.

 

This site, DH and UO, is a community space designed to showcase DH interests and projects across campus. Please visit this site to keep up with our progress.  We will update our events calendar regularly with announcements about hands-on workshops to build DH projects, the DH Speaker Series, and other events where we’ll share our work and interests.
