Digital Humanities at Seton Hall University

The Seton Hall Digital Humanities Committee defines Digital Humanities (DH) as a broad and dynamic interdisciplinary field of study. DH scholarship explores traditional areas of humanities through the application of new technologies, as well as applying traditional humanities-oriented questions to emerging technologies in society.  Digital scholarship at the university can be found within three main areas of study.

New explorations of traditional humanities-oriented areas of study that are made possible through the use of statistically grounded, computer-enabled analysis that includes text mining, spatial analysis, data visualization, etc. Research can be both theoretical and methodological in focus.

Research into the creation of pedagogical tools and applications of technology to improve classroom learning, as well as studies into how emerging technologies change pedagogy. Research that both advances the use of technology in the classroom and examines and assesses the impact on learning is included.

Application of traditional areas of critical theory from the social sciences and humanities to study new media and emerging technologies. Research will advance an understanding of the impact of a rapidly expanding digital culture.

2018 Faculty Fellows

The Digital Humanities (DH) committee’s Faculty Fellows grant program is entering its third year. The theme for the 2018 Digital Humanities Faculty Fellows cohort is “Building Core Competencies in the Digital Humanities. The grants support the integration of DH in teaching and learning through reimagining course projects or creating new ones using digital pedagogies and technologies. The goal is to fund projects that will contribute to a future Digital Humanities Certificate. Innovation and experimentation are hallmarks of this grant. The grant period runs from February – August 2018 with a final best practices showcase during the Fall 2018 semester for Faculty Fellows to share their experiences with colleagues.
