The Digital Humanities Initiative at Buffalo functions as an applied think-tank for the humanities and related areas. It is designed to serve as an intellectual hub for scholars involved in innovative research and instruction at the intersection of the humanities, computing, and other emerging digital technologies and to provide an environment in which faculty are encouraged to experiment and develop digital solutions to challenges in research and instruction, or to experiment with digital technologies that may lead to new applications and project challenges.

At the local level, the DHIB serves in part to coordinate the multiple sites of excellence in digital technology, computing sciences, and humanities research already developed at UB in order to provide efficient management of shared resources, especially hardware, software, and technological expertise. This platform for shared information and cutting edge research across disciplines in turn grounds communication among members at the DHIB’s regular meetings, roundtables, and workshops. The DHIB will also sponsor conferences and lectures to bring in outstanding international practioners of digital Humanities scholarship and provide training in new digital technologies for members of the DHIB.

At the national and international level, the DHIB will serve as a leader in the development, application and interpretation of research in the Humanities and related areas. The outstanding collections in the UB Libraries will bring affiliated scholars to the Initiative, and the cutting edge research of UB faculty will draw postdoctoral fellows and scholars to participate actively in the DHIB community.
