We’re an organization working to address the lack of cross-institutional support for undergraduate research in the humanities.

To reverse this culture, we’ve become that collective of students from a wide array of colleges and universities. Our mission is to promote, present, and encourage rigorous student research in the humanities, especially with an emphasis on digital humanities. UNRH provides both a physical space for student interactions in the form of an annual conference, and a virtual space on our website with a forum built for the exchange of ideas. Our network has been steadily growing; in fact, since our first conference in November, 2015, we have accepted over 50 projects, involving over 80 undergraduates from 31 institutions all across the United States, Canada, Nigeria, and Pakistan.

We are excited to announce that our 2018 conference will be hosted by Hope College on February 16th-18th in Holland, MI.
