Graduate students can learn digital methodologies through summer fellowships where they work alongside faculty on larger digital research projects. HDW also offers a graduate certificate in digital humanities.
Undergraduate students can work alongside faculty on exciting new digital humanities research projects. HDW also offers an undergraduate minor in data science in the humanities.
It starts with a conversation
The Humanities Digital Workshop offers project consulting and support for faculty in the humanities who wish to develop digital projects as part of their research. In addition, the HDW provides opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to participate in research projects led by Washington University faculty.
The HDW is part of the infrastructure at WashU for digital scholarship in the humanities — what’s often termed the digital humanities or humanities computing — that includes Olin Library’s Digital Library Services, GIS @ Wustl, the Center for Empirical Research in the Law, and the American Culture Studies program. The HDW promotes the university’s activities in both of its basic vectors: in research, by facilitating projects that require or benefit from data collection and analysis, or electronic publication; in teaching, by bringing students into the research process in concrete ways that can be rare in the humanities. It’s one of the happy facts about digital projects that they’re often intensely collaborative.
