Digital Humanities

Digital humanities encompasses both the study of culture using digital methods and the study of digital culture. In digital humanities, we analyze cultural materials and tell stories using digital technologies while maintaining a critical lens.

Digital Humanities at Michigan State University (DH@MSU) facilitates collaborations among the digital centers, labs, programs, and projects across campus. Our community supports innovative research, scholarship, teaching, and public engagement at a national and international level. We work through interdisciplinary partnerships and hands-on use of digital methods and tools toward social action and experiential learning.
