Who We Are:

UNRH is a network founded by and for undergraduates in order to reimagine the undergraduate role in innovative humanities research. “We are InterHumanities, the space or bridges between groups, acting to bring students and ideas together. We are interdisciplinary, inter-institutional, and international,” (Mills, 2017). Our Mission:

We aim to aggregate, present, and promote student research that questions the methods of traditional humanities research. We further hope to establish a sustainable network of digital scholarship through which students collaborate, question and break down leading models of teaching and learning in order to reclaim student agency, and form a community.

UNRH is managed by a Steering Committee of students from institutions all over the world. The committee meets virtually and regularly throughout the year to continue to develop UNRH and organize the annual conference.

UNRH is only made possible thanks to the generosity of our sponsors. Together, our participants, committee, and sponsors form a network of institutions that intersect across departments, institutions, and nations. We are a proud, global collective striving towards realizing our mission of empowering undergraduate researchers in the digital humanities/digital liberal arts.

What We Do:

We are working toward hosting a virtual space for peer review and for sharing ideas, events, resources. Additionally we host an annual conference. This conference addresses our goals in four ways:

  • We provide a physical platform for the submission, peer reviewed selection, and presentation of projects alone or in collaboration.
  • We engage in workshops, in order to develop skills for professional development, whether that be within academia or outside of it.
  • We gather for “design-thinking” sessions with the purpose of drawing out the problems in the current undergraduate research model in order to create actionable solutions.
  • We establish a network for peer-learning and collaboration across institutions and countries.
