The purpose of the Center for Humanities and Digital Research (CHDR) is to initiate and support both advanced research and teaching in the humanities and arts, and interdisciplinary scholarship within the humanities and with other disciplines.
The institute provides space, resources, expertise, programming, and digital research support both for individuals and scholars who seek to collaboratively address issues of central concern to our time and place, to connect history to the present, and to explore new ways of understanding, and educating others about, the diversity of cultures and ideas in our society and around the globe.
