Digital Humanities Initiative
Our primary goal thus far has been to create a community of scholars and educators interested in exploring new possibilities for our research and teaching. That might include expanding the reach of one’s research, using DH tools to find new insights, and providing greater opportunity for collaboration across disciplines, colleges, and universities. Incorporating DH into courses can get students more directly involved in original, interdisciplinary research. The digital humanities also have the potential to facilitate community engagement projects, public scholarship, and other socially-oriented research and pedagogy. The conceptualization of the Digital Humanities that we aspire to here at OSU is inclusive and accessible. In the words of Dr. Roopika Risam (visiting speaker in March 2019), “…the opportunity to intervene in the digital cultural record—to tell new stories, shed light on counter-histories, and create spaces for communities to produce and share their own knowledges should they wish—is the great promise of digital humanities” (Risam, 2018, p. 5). You can find a range of DH related resources on our Resources page.
DIGITAL HUMANITIES AT OSU
|OSU has been hosting regular meetings of scholars interested in digital research and pedagogy for a couple of years now. The panel in this video was designed to highlight some of the DH Research already being done on campus, outline resources available to scholars interested in pursuing such projects, and identify undergraduates who might be interested in pursuing an undergraduate certificate in Digital Studies (currently in development). We'd like to expand the pool of OSU faculty and students engaged in such research, including those in the STEM fields who might be interested in collaborating on future projects.|
