Digital humanities brings data and information sciences together with traditional print humanities to seek new approaches, new questions, and new methods in research, teaching, and the public promotion of humanities. Digital humanists engage in a wide variety of work creating and curating digital collections and tools, analyzing text, image, and ideas with digital tools, and studying digital culture and how it impacts our ideas about the world.
The Program in Interdisciplinary Humanities (PIH) promotes the humanities from an interdisciplinary perspective by offering courses and curricula that answer questions humanists have long asked -- questions about what artifacts and texts mean and how artifacts and texts function for the communities that use them. With over 400 majors and minors, PIH allows students to chart a unique course which combines multiple areas of interest and specialization. Through courses like “The Art of Being Human” (Hum 2020) and “Intercultural Film”, undergraduates from all majors and disciplines come together to study art and culture from the distant past to the present.
