The GW 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 support — through grants, workshops, symposia, and exhibitions — collaborative endeavors in scholarship and multimodal venues of teaching and learning. We seek to increase public engagement with digital humanities projects within and beyond the GW community and greater DC area.
The GW Digital Humanities Institute was launched in 2013 through initial funding by the Office of the Provost, the Office of the Vice President for Research, and the Columbian College of Arts & Sciences. Administrative support is generously provided by the Department of English.
