At the intersection of technology and the humanities, it’s no surprise that the Big Ten Academic Alliance universities are providing national leadership to increase opportunities for researchers, enrich programs, accelerate innovation, and promote sustainability. Big Ten Academic Alliance universities stakeholders are working together on identifying the emerging opportunities for collaboration in digital humanities across Big Ten Academic Alliance universities campuses.
The Big Ten Academic Alliance universities Digital Humanities group began in 2011. After developing the Big Ten Academic Alliance universities Digital Humanities Environmental Scan, the group has provided opportunities for Big Ten Academic Alliance universities faculty to network with others interested in DH. Among its activities have been the Big Ten Academic Alliance universities Digital Humanities Summit, held at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in April of 2012; receptions at the Modern Language Association (MLA) conference in Seattle, the American Historical Association (AHA) conference in New Orleans and the Digital Humanities 2013 international conference in Lincoln, Nebraska; a poster session at the DH2013 conference; and a round table at the 2013 Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer Science at DePaul University.
