The Digital Humanities initiative (DHi) at Hamilton College is a collaboratory - digital parlance for a research and teaching collaboration - where new media and computing technologies are used to promote humanities-based teaching, research, and scholarship across the liberal arts.

DHi creates opportunities for new interdisciplinary models and methods of collaboration between faculty and students.

These activities support a fundamental shift in humanities research, leveraging the potential of technology to access and manipulate rich media collections in ways that increase collaborative scholarship (not only within Hamilton humanities but also, potentially, with other institutions around the world) and lead to the generation of new knowledge.
