About the Center

Digital resources and digital methods of study promise to enrich and reinforce traditional forms of knowledge in the Humanities. Digital Humanities uses computational methods to study literature, history, culture, and other humanities subjects. At the same time, it encompasses the many different ways in which the digital influences and informs our understanding of the human experience, examining digital technologies themselves from a humanistic perspective. Digital humanists are typically concerned with the preservation and dissemination of cultural artifacts in digital form; the creation of large-scale digital resources; the use of computational techniques for analyzing the objects of humanities study; and the critical analysis of digital tools and their impact on society. Digital Humanities thus intersects across disciplines with the work of social scientists, communication researchers, library scientists, information studies scholars, and computer scientists who share interests in digital methods.

The purpose of the Center for Digital Humanities is to provide a home to a group of faculty and students interested in exploring the many facets of Digital Humanities. Housed in the College of Humanities of the California State University, Northridge, the Center seeks to serve the university, the immediate community, and society at large through: (1) research using digital methods and digital technologies; (2) dissemination of research, especially through digital media; and (3) inquiry into the impact of the digital in today’s society.
