Digital Humanities

The Simpson Center has been central to the emergence and growth of the digital humanities through its programming, opportunities for support, and facilitation of interdisciplinary scholarship. We offer a large-scale program of summer fellowships for faculty and graduate students, sponsor visiting speakers in the broad domain of digital humanities, and partner with the UW Graduate Certificate in Textual and Digital Studies and the University Libraries. Our support of the digital humanities is inclusive of research and teaching, and the integration of the two.
