What is Digital Humanities?

Digital Humanities is an umbrella term that describes using technology to study the human record, particularly as its recorded through text, sound, image, and video.

What is Digital Humanities at Tufts?

DH at Tufts includes a growing community of faculty, staff, and students. We provide services in all aspects of digital humanities, focusing particularly on text mining, data visualizations, digital archives and editions, and digital sound studies:

  • We consult with faculty and students to help produce innovative digital humanities projects, tools, and digital assignments.
  • We provide instruction in digital humanities tools and methodologies through hands-on workshops and classroom visits.
  • We build community by hosting events—including symposiums, speaker series, and student showcases—that actively engage debates about the vital issues in the field.

We’d love to have you join us for consultations, instruction, and community building!
