The Center for Digital Humanities at Princeton

The Center for Digital Humanities (CDH) is an interdisciplinary research center devoted to building knowledge infrastructures for the use of digital evidence, fostering communities of practice across disciplines and professions, and modeling critical approaches to the role of data and technology in research and daily life. Our team consists of developers, designers, scholars, writers, and teachers.

Research

We partner with Princeton faculty, students, and fellow library colleagues to incubate innovative digital humanities projects at multiple stages of development - from small seed grants to peer-reviewed, chartered projects involving our Development and Design Team and our Project Management System.  Most CDH staff have 20% R&D time. We use this time to build research projects of our own design, present at conferences and publish.

Consultation

Staff members consult on digital humanities projects at any stage of development to facilitate collaborations and connections on and off-campus. The CDH also hosts an open lab and welcomes students, faculty, and staff to work collaboratively in our space.

Teaching

CDH staff and affiliated researchers teach hands-on workshops that relate digital methods to humanities research. We are also working to establish digital humanities in the graduate and undergraduate curriculum at Princeton.

Events

The CDH hosts and co-hosts a wide range of events designed to bring greater awareness of digital humanities research methods and discoveries to the Princeton community. The center fosters discussion on campus and actively engages in debates about critical issues in the field.
