Digital Humanities Projects

Throughout the Center for Digital Humanities' short history, our faculty and staff have developed numerous projects, many of which are listed below.

The goal most broadly was to tackle an outstanding problem in historical humanities research, namely that of “dirty data.” DHC was to result in a software tool which would help researchers discover related to, but not directly within, a given search query.
