Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities , University of Maryland http://www.mith.umd.edu/ MITH plays a leadership role in developing innovative technological resources for revitalizing, reinventing, and expanding humanities research and education. Exploring the profound effects of the new opportunities presented by digital culture, MITH serves college and pre-college faculty and students, as well as members of the local, national, and international communities with technical resources, project consultation, and a broad array of programs. MITH is the University’s primary intellectual hub for scholars and practitioners of digital humanities, electronic literature, and cyberculture, as well as the home of the Electronic Literature Organization, the most prominent international group devoted to the writing, publishing and reading of electronic literature. On a day to day basis, MITH functions as an applied think tank for the digital humanities, both in furthering the excellence of its Fellows’ research and in cultivating its own innovative research agendas–currently clustering around digital tools, text mining and visualization, and the creation and preservation of electronic literature, digital games, virtual worlds. Our work unfolds in a generous physical space, complemented by programs and events that include team-consultations for faculty digital projects, weekly Digital Dialogues (brown bags), frequent visiting speakers, themed Coffeehouse Conversations, courses taught in our seminar room, and ongoing interaction among fellows, students, and staff. Many of our events are open to the public.


Matrix: The Center for Humane Arts, Letters, and Social Sciences Online , Michigan State University http://www.matrix.msu.edu/ Matrix is devoted to the application of new technologies in humanities and social science teaching and research. The Center creates and maintains online resources, provides training in computing and new teaching technologies, and creates forums for the exchange of ideas and expertise in new teaching technologies. It offers a Humanities Computing Certificate to those who complete its program. Mission Statement The mission of MATRIX, The Center for Humane, Arts, Letters, and Social Sciences Online is to serve as a catalyst for and incubator of the emerging fields and disciplines resulting from the integration of the humanities with information technologies.


Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities Research Humanities Informatics Initiative , Texas A&M University http://www.tamu.edu/chr/Programs_Activities/humanitiesinformatics.html The Humanities Informatics Initiative brings together scholars from around the university for the purpose of advancing research in the application of information technology to scholarly activities in the humanities and the exploration of the human record. Its goal is to develop innovative computing tools, digital collections, and hypertextual archives of broadly significant academic and educational value to the humanities. The consortium builds on interdisciplinary collaboration between current projects and existing research centers and aims to expand in a synergistic manner the role of information technology research at Texas A&M. Programs include a Working Group in Humanities Informatics, Humanities Informatics Grant Programs, a website, and a Humanities Informatics Lecture Series.

Research in Computing for the Humanities , University of Kentucky http://www.rch.uky.edu/ A "collaboratory" of computer scientists and humanities scholars investigating humanities research problems, Research in Computing for the Humanities provides intriguing challenges for computer science in developing new applications of computer technology to research in the humanities and sponsors a lecture series in conjunction with the UK Center for Computational Sciences. The mission of RCH is to provide infrastructure, technical assistance, and grant writing assistance to university faculty who wish to undertake humanities computing projects, and to encourage and support interdisciplinary projects among individuals and groups from UK and around the world. We work closely with the Special Collections and Digital Programs Division of the University of Kentucky Libraries and the Center for Visualization & Virtual Environments, and we also receive support from UK's Center for Computational Sciences.

Center for Digital Humanities , University of California , Los Angeles http://www.cdh.ucla.edu/ The Center for Digital Humanities seeks to advance the teaching, research, and public service mission of the Humanities Division by the use of computing technology and new media; assist academic projects by locating personnel and funding, discovering partners both inside and outside the university, and managing the projects over time; and facilitate use of the Web in teaching. The Center for Digital Humanities, UCLA, will be an international leader in the development, application and interpretation of digital technologies in research and instruction in the Humanities. To that end, the Center will provide the support and infrastructure necessary to promote the innovative use of technology in teaching, research and public service by the faculty, students and staff of the Division of Humanities, as well as foster an understanding of the implications of such technology in the Humanities. Mission The Center for Digital Humanities is a home for innovative research and instruction at the intersection of the Humanities, computing and other emerging digital technologies. The Center provides a broad range of services to the faculty, students and staff of the Humanities Division. These services include: • The development of innovative technological solutions for research and instruction • An environment in which faculty and instructors are encouraged to experiment with and develop technological solutions to problems in research and instruction. • Forums for the discussion of humanities and technology • Consistent, timely information and instruction regarding computing technology • Efficient management of shared computing resources including the Humanities network, the computing labs and E-Campus • Robust technical support for hardware and software
