About

DIGI (Digital Humanities Initiative) is an interdisciplinary endeavor sponsored by the UGA Libraries, the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts, and the UGA Press that seeks to create a community of praxis surrounding Digital Humanities methods and tools.

The initiative includes the Willson Center Digital Humanities Lab, known informally as the DigiLab, which serves as a digital instruction space as well as an incubator for digital humanities projects.

Through the lab we also support the DIGI undergraduate certificate; grant writing and project consultations; and training for integrating Digital Humanities methods into the classroom.

Research

We provide one on one consultations for both faculty and students for digital project planning and project management. We’ll help you define your scope, train you on the technologies you need and create a plan for a successful project.

If you’re writing a grant for a digital project, please schedule a consultation before submission.

Pedagogy

For those looking to bring DH methods to the classroom, we offer assistance in syllabus design and scaffolding for digital assignments. To learn more about creating digital classes join our Faculty Learning Community  this Fall. Applications are due August 26.

Digi Certificate

The DIGI Undergraduate certificate offers a wide selection of interdisciplinary courses designed to introduce Digital Humanities methods to undergraduate research. Students receive hands-on experience in creating their own digital projects that combine their deep humanities knowledge with technical skill. Courses rotate each semester. See our Certificate page for additional details.
