Our Charter

The goal of IDRH is to prepare and support faculty and graduate students as they explore and use computing technology to advance humanistic scholarship across disciplines. IDRH will enhance the possibilities that digital technologies present to humanities research by:

  • Providing opportunities for faculty and graduate students to learn about the use of technology for humanistic inquiry, and stimulating ongoing discussions about relationships between technologies and human experience;
  • Supporting the development or novel use of digital tools and practices for innovative humanities research, including collaborative and interdisciplinary research;
  • Assisting scholars to explore new and emerging models of digital research, publishing, and peer-review;
  • Providing a knowledge base and the training for faculty to successfully pursue external grant awards, particularly in computationally-assisted research;
  • Working with faculty, departmental leadership, promotion and tenure committees, and KU administration to generate a series of dialogues about the transformation occurring in humanities scholarship, and the implications for digital research contributions and their evaluation; and
  • Providing a forum for scholarly innovation, as well as for discussions between faculty, departmental leadership, promotion and tenure committees, and KU administration about the implications of the transformations in digital scholarship on their evaluation.
