Digital methods enable new forms of aesthetic creation, scholarly inquiry, public outreach, and pedagogical practice that have become increasingly central to the work of artists and humanities scholars at all levels of the academy and for members of the IU-Bloomington community who continue their work outside of the academy. IDAH offers a variety of digital-methods training, in both formal degree-granting form and informal continuing-education form, designed to enhance the work our faculty staff and students do every day.

DAH CERTIFICATE + MINOR PROGRAMSThe Digital Arts & Humanities program offers both a certificate and a minor that signal competencies and expertise to potential academic (teacher, lecturer, professor, librarian) and non-academic (administrator, scholar in digital humanities centers, libraries, museums, and other cultural heritage institutions) employers. Our certificate and minor align arts & humanities graduate training at IU with an increasing emphasis on public scholarship and put graduate students in dialogue with the broader public via interdisciplinary digital methods and the enhanced accessibility afforded by digital scholarship and creative activity.
Our digital-methods workshops demonstrate how applications of mapping, data mining, network analysis, data visualization, 3D rendering, computationally aided vision and other digital methods can help arts & humanities practitioners craft new research questions and answer those questions. We also link attendees to the IU resources that can support these efforts and provide practical examples of these digital-methods applications in a variety of environments (including the classroom). We also provide recaps of past workshops, with full slides and (in most cases) video.
