What is IDAH?
The Institute of Digital Arts and Humanities or IDAH is a research center under OVPR. As a member of this institution, we work to support faculty and students with their research and pedagogical plans that have a digital humanities or arts component.
Digital humanities is an area of study that deals with the intersection of digital methods with humanities topics. This definition is expansive and includes a wide range of digital methods and research topics. We have supported projects in arts, economics, and history using methods like 3D printing, text analysis, and network analysis. Check out some of those projects here and some digital methods here.
Digital methods are useful for creating visualizations, analyzing large amounts of information, and following new routes of publishing findings online. More about these digital methods can be found here.
