Computational Humanities

Through lecture series, summer institutes, workshops, and hackathons, the Center for the Humanities joins other digital initiatives on campus in exploring the computational humanities. This lab investigates how advanced computational techniques and approaches can augment the close analysis provided by more traditional humanities scholarship.

By applying techniques widely used across the sciences, such as data analysis, computational modeling, network mapping, and more, humanists are discovering unexpected connections and intriguing patterns in music, visual art, literature, and historical works, opening up new realms for analysis, criticism, and understanding.

Our Computational Humanities Lab offers skills and software training, discussions and workshops, and provides a venue for presenting cutting edge computational scholarship in the humanities.
