The Office of Digital Humanities (ODH) offers grant programs that fund project teams developing new technologies for humanities research, teaching and learning, public engagement, open access publishing, as well as for those studying digital culture from a humanistic perspective. Another major goal of ODH is to increase capacity of the humanities field, interpreted broadly, in applying digital methods.
To best tackle the broad, interdisciplinary questions that arise when studying digital technology, ODH works closely with the scholarly community and other funding agencies in the United States and abroad, to encourage collaboration across national and disciplinary boundaries.
ODH-funded digital projects contribute to humanities scholarship that serves carefully-identified audiences, addresses issues of accessibility and usability, and is designed to be open, replicable, and sustainable. All projects funded in this division analyze their workflows and publish their results in white papers that are shared widely. This body of work contributes to the bibliography of digital humanities.
In addition to sponsoring grant programs, ODH participates in conferences and workshops with the scholarly community to help foster understanding of issues in the digital humanities and ensure we are meeting the needs of the field.
ODH funds professional development opportunities in digital humanities topics and methods. Visit the list of current institutes and see past opportunities.
