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.
This October, directors and project managers from the nodes of the Advanced Research Consortium (ARC) met in Raleigh, North Carolina to discuss the expansion, implementation, and sustainability of ARC as a digital infrastructure for the future of humanities scholarship.
