The Catapult Center for Digital Humanities & Computational Analysis was established by the IU College of Arts and Sciences in 2012 for the promotion of the digital humanities and the computational and material analysis of texts. The goal of the Center was to build a visible community of scholars and researchers from the humanities, social sciences, computer and information sciences, and material sciences who wish to collaborate in seeking innovative solutions to problems that arise in textual and para-textual research. The Center hosted Colloquia 2012-2015.
This year (2016-2017), IDAH has expanded Catapult’s mission to encompass Digital Critique. Faculty and students from across the University are invited to join us in a year-long exploration of Diversity and Digital Culture. Our aim is to explore the way digital practices and everyday technology address, remediate, and reconfigure difference.
