Stanford scholars are harnessing the power of new technologies through an array of digital humanities endeavors. Current digital humanities projects are using tools like 3-D mapping, electronic literary analysis, digitization, and advanced visualization techniques in interdisciplinary research that aim to shed new light on humanities research.
With online publishing and virtual archives, creators and users experiment and interact with source materials in ways that yield new findings, while also facilitating community building and information sharing.
Stanford professors and students organize an array of workshop style forums to foster discussion of digital humanities scholarship. Guest presenters from around the globe regularly contribute to conversations about the techniques, challenges, and outcomes of digital humanities research.
