The Digital Humanities Lab

A collective home for digital projects focused on the cross-section between the humanities and technology


The Digital Humanities Lab at Appalachian State University is the home for all digital humanities projects that combine expertise in the humanities disciplines with technological skills. This site is a visual platform to communicate the innovation in research and scholarship thriving on App State's campus. If you would like to join our community, please send an email to Agnes Gambill. The Digital Humanities Working Group regularly hosts workshops and offers resources to members. We also welcome collaborations with faculty from scientific disciplines.
