During the 2020-2021 academic year, the Institute for Digital Arts & Humanities will investigate the theme Ambient Algorhythms in the Arts and Humanities. We'll focus on themes such as algorithms of pervasive surveillance, permutations of ambient music, reverberations of sounds in our cities and homes, patterns of documenting injustices, and exponential ebbs and flows of a global pandemic.These points of intersection have urgent, often paradoxical implications in our everyday lives. By looking to scholars and artists as they question and dissect emerging facets of this new digital age, we will explore how algorhythms can be defined and applied in the arts and humanities and how these ambient forces can shape our collective experience.


Workshops are back--and looking a little different this year! Our team has been hard at work repackaging our workshop content to be as useful as possible in a new, asynchronous form. We hope you'll find them helpful for your research and teaching in these strange times. As always, if you have questions, comments, or concerns about each workshop as they are released, please feel free to contact us at
