The George Washington University Digital Humanities Institute is a hub of research, teaching, and outreach activities around digital and new media. It is founded upon the core belief that the arts and humanities actively transform and are transformed by digital cultures. We seek to increase public engagement with digital humanities projects within and beyond the GW community and greater DC area.


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all in-person events are currently on hold. We remain a connecting place for local and virtual communities. Please stay tuned for in-person, virtual, and hybrid events starting Fall 2021.
