The Center for Digital Humanities and Culture (DHC)
The DHC at Indiana University of Pennsylvania supports scholarship, proof-of-concept explorations, and project applications of digital technologies in Humanistic inquiry. It recognizes that today technology saturates the entire academic sphere, from classroom, to library, to lab. It aims to facilitate conversation, collaboration, and resource sharing amongst specialists within the disciplines. It seeks to make connections between new technologies and traditional knowledge areas, as the academy navigates the “print-to-digital” paradigm shift.
