We are motivated by the conviction that the digital era provides rich opportunities for informal and formal learning and for collaborative, networked research that extends across traditional disciplines, across the boundaries of academe and community, across the “two cultures” of humanism and technology, across the divide of thinking versus making, and across social strata and national borders.

College Station, TX, United States

Welcome to IDHMC: the Initiative for Digital Humanities, Media, and Culture. This initiative is one of eight IUMRI’s or Landmark Research Areas to receive major university funding as part of its Academic Master Plan. We are in the early stages of development and hope soon to become a full-fledged institute. Here is our mission statement, authored by Maura Ives and Laura Mandell:

- To perform research on the global impact of computing, digitization, cyber-worlds, and digital communication on culture by fostering collaboration among various disciplines housed in different colleges across the University;
– To participate in creating a cyberinfrastructure for the Humanities, which is to say, a structure capable of making the human record accessible and usable by new computing technologies that will allow performing the new kinds of research that have been impossible up to now;
– To foster among faculty at Texas A&M University inter-institutional and international relationships for the sake of maximizing the use of expertise and resources devoted to research in the Humanities, new media, and art.

Please contact Director Laura Mandell (mandell at tamu.edu) or Project Manager Mary Farrington (m-farrington at tamu.edu) if you have thoughts or questions.
