Digital Humanities Committee

Digital Humanities Committee will support and assist in the development of scholarly and pedagogical digital humanities projects, promoting experimentation and collaboration, and publicizing results of faculty and student work. They will help oversee and administer funds from granting agencies for DH projects, and discuss and propose curricular initiatives, including collaboration with other institutions. The committee will prepare an annual report on DH initiatives and achievements for the Provost. The committee is comprised of six members of the teaching faculty (three-year terms with the possibility of renewal); two representatives from the University Library (four-year terms); two representatives from Information Technology Services (four-year terms); the director of the Global Discovery Laboratories; and a student.
