Welcome

Northwestern University’s Digital Humanities Summer Workshop brings together faculty, librarians, and technologists for a two-week intensive, critical, and collaborative experience in developing digital humanities pedagogy and research projects with meaningful roles for students.

Hosted by the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities and co-organized by Northwestern University Libraries and The Weinberg College Media and Design Studio, the Digital Humanities Summer Workshop provides Northwestern humanities faculty with the opportunity to learn and grow technology skills; think critically about digital information, tools and culture; conceptualize and collaborate on research and pedagogy projects; and participate in interdisciplinary seminars and discussions.

Made possible with the generous support of Northwestern University’s Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences and the Office of the Provost, the annual workshop was launched in 2013 with funding from the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations.
