The Digital Humanities Research Network aims to create a centralized digital humanities community on the UW-Madison campus. On our website, we focus on the processes involved in digitizing, quantifying, and visualizing different types of humanities objects turned data (including printed books, manuscripts, historical records, art, music, films). In addition to opening up new research questions, the group provides an opportunity for a sustained conversation about the computational and analytical aspects of the digital humanities, considering the current theories underlying digital methodologies, as well as providing feedback on specific projects at various stages.

The website has recently been redesigned and will be acquiring new material as oral interviews get underway and new projects are documented.
