Texas A&M University seeks to hire a dynamic researcher with an established record in digital humanities research and/or humanities, artistic, or information visualization to participate in establishing an interdisciplinary Institute for Digital Humanities, Media, and Culture (IDHMC). Currently an “initiative,” the IDHMC (http://idhmc.tamu.edu) will become an Institute upon approval by the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents.
It is the IDHMC’s great pleasure to announce that the Renaissance English Knowledgebase (REKn) project will become the next node within ARC (Advanced Research Consortium), joining NINES (Nineteeth-century Scholarship Online), 18thConnect, and MESA (the Medieval Electronic Scholarly Alliance).
We recently put together a short video about the Initiative for Digital Humanities, Media, and Culture.
Take a look at some photos and clips of our recent faculty, visiting scholars, staff, and graduate students here.
