Over the last decade, the University has seen a soaring interest in what is
often referred to as the “Digital Humanities,” a term that has become more
and more a part of the University’s lexicon.

The Digital Humanities, as the University defines them, are a “collection
of practices and approaches combining computational methods with humanistic
inquiry.” Though the University’s involvement in the Digital Humanities
goes back to the mid-to-late 20th century with the creation of programs
like the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA), the
University seems to be experiencing a resurgence of faculty and student
interest in fusing the age-old humanities with new technologies.
