Digital Humanities

The digital humanities are concerned with humanities questions through digital means, such as digital archives, tool and algorithm building, large data set visualization, 3-D modeling of historical material objects, social media analysis, multimedia and multimodal exhibits, born-digital publications, narrative video games and search and discovery digital tools.

Current projects supported by the Digital Humanities Initiative include:

  • An on-paper prototype for a feminist video game tracking the experience of a migrant mother crossing the U.S.–Mexico border.
  • A new digital tool for student survivors of sexual assault at Arizona State University. Learn more about MyChoice.
  • The 2019 Digital Humanities and Pedagogy Institute that connects ASU faculty, Maricopa County Community College faculty and graduate students to think about using digital tools in the classroom.
