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 distinct 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) at Knight Library has long supported faculty in the development of digital projects.  The Digital Scholarship Center (DSC) collaborates with faculty and students to transform research and scholarly communication using new media and digital technologies. Based on a foundation of access, sharing, and preservation, the DSC provides digital asset management, digital preservation, training, consultations, and tools for digital scholarship.

The new Undergraduate Minor in DH, once complete, will offer a cohesive cluster of courses for undergraduates interested in bridging studies in traditional humanities disciplines with digital technology.  This new undergraduate program and minor will draw from faculty interest across the college of Arts and Sciences and beyond.  

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 working group where members of our community meet to discuss work in progress, and other events around campus relating to DH.
