DH at Tufts has several vital partner projects and organizations.

The Center for the Humanities at Tufts (CHAT):

CHAT fosters interdisciplinary humanities work in comparative literature, comparative religion, world history, philosophy, anthropology, and the arts, to innovate new research and reflection. The Center hosts public lectures, seminars, conferences and colloquia by visiting artists, writers, and scholars, and brings together faculty, postdoctoral, and dissertation fellows. 

The Center for Race and Democracy (CSRD):

The CSRD’s mission is to promote engaged research and scholarship that focus on the ways in which issues of race and democracy impact the lives of global citizens. Through interdisciplinary scholarship, technological innovation, and public symposia, the CSRD seeks to develop an interactive model of history that fosters a robust intellectual and civic dialogue on race relations, civil rights, law, international relations, and democracy at Tufts, in Boston, and in the wider global community.

Tufts Archival Research Center (TARC):

The DCA supports the teaching and research mission of Tufts University by ensuring the enduring preservation and accessibility of the university’s permanently valuable records and collections. The DCA assists departments, faculty, and staff in managing records and other assets. The DCA collaborates with members of the Tufts community and others to develop tools to discover and access collections to support teaching, research, and administrative needs.

Digital Design Studio (DDS):

The DDS is a self-service creative space in Tisch Library for the production of digital class projects and the exploration of digital media. The DDS can help you get started with data graphics, digital stories, poster making, and video projects.


Perseus, directed by Gregory Crane (Classics), covers the history, literature and culture of the Greco-Roman world. Started in 1985, this digital library focuses on making the full record of humanity – linguistic sources, physical artifacts, historical spaces – as intellectually accessible as possible to every human being, regardless of linguistic or cultural background. 

The School of the Museum of Fine Art at Tufts (SMFA):

The SMFA is not simply a technical institute, but a school dedicated to the exploration of ideas through the development of visual literacy and expression. It encourages the development of individual creativity through close mentorship of students engaged in self-directed study and interdisciplinary practice.

The South Asia Digital Humanities Lab:

This lab pursues projects in oral history collection, global networked learning, multimedia indexing, and annotation to create a shared searchable corpus of South Asian multimedia materials online, and to leverage these instructional resources for education in connected classrooms.

Tisch Library:

The Tisch Library is the largest of the Tufts Libraries. It particularly focuses on the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering, but welcomes and aims to serve the entire Tufts Community they pursue their teaching, learning and research. Tisch is an adaptive space, seeking to accommodate and anticipate new learning modes while supporting core and traditional research and study.

Tufts Technology Services:

Tufts Technology Services (TTS) is a university-wide service organization committed to delivering technology services that support Tufts’ mission of teaching, learning, research, and service. Understanding that IT enables innovation, TTS prioritizes holistic, human-centered design strategies to create timely and intuitive services, applications and tools that differentiate the Tufts experience.
