What is the Office of Digital Humanities?

The Office of Digital Humanities (ODH) offers grant programs that fund project teams experimenting with digital technologies to develop new methodologies for humanities research, teaching and learning, public engagement, and scholarly communications. ODH funds those studying digital culture from a humanistic perspective and humanists seeking to create digital publications. Another major goal of ODH is to increase capacity of the humanities in applying digital methods.

To best tackle the broad, interdisciplinary questions that arise when studying digital technology, ODH works closely with the scholarly community and other funding agencies in the United States and abroad, to encourage collaboration across national and disciplinary boundaries.

Funded digital projects contribute to humanities scholarship that serve carefully-identified audiences, address issues of accessibility and usability, and are designed to be open, replicable, and sustainable. All projects funded in this division analyze their workflows and publish their results in white papers that are shared widely. This body of work contributes to the bibliography of digital humanities.
