Digital Humanities at Carleton

Digital Humanities 2012 

Digital Humanities projects are proliferating at Carleton! The Mellon Foundation’s “Collaborative Planning for the Digital Humanities” grant to Carleton, St. Olaf and Macalester Colleges allowed us to build capacity, establish partnerships, and begin regular programming in "DH" on campus for 2012-14. Since Fall 2012, the Humanities Center at Carleton has served as the center for this work.  In Winter Term 2015, thanks to the presence of a Robert Oden Postdoctoral fellow on campus, we will offer the first course devoted solely to the Digital Humanities. Dr. Austin Mason will teach "Hacking the Humanities," as well as four other courses offered from Winter 2015-Spring 2016.
