This year’s theme will be InterHumanities: The Importance and Challenges of Interdisciplinary and International Collaboration in Digital Humanities Research. During these divisive times worldwide, we at UNRH want to stress the significance of a diversity of ideas and connections to produce meaningful scholarship. We will not be giving preferential treatment to projects that align well with this theme, but we hope to encourage applicants to consider how their projects could or already do benefit from “inter”-related elements.
We are excited to discuss this theme with you this spring!
This year we are excited to announce Hope College in Holland, MI will be hosting UNRH’s 2018 conference! Hope has a long history with Digital Humanities, pioneered by William Pannapacker, author of several published articles about DH in The Chronicle of Higher Education. Dr. Pannapacker also founded Hope’s Andrew C. Mellon Scholars Program, a digital liberal arts chapter cultivating research and digital interests in some of Hope’s most enthusiastic learners. Mellon students have produced volumes of digital projects, presented at the National Celebration of Undergraduate Research, Posters on the Hill, and of course, UNRH, to name a few. Hope College is very excited to expand its connections with other students who are involved in digital humanities research and looks forward to hosting.
