Digital Humanities Initiative
Digital humanities supports Harpeth Hall's motto to "think critically, lead confidently, live honorably" by:
- Encompassing technology, critical thinking, creativity, and scholarship in a way that lives online and allows individuals and groups to participate as both producers and consumers.
- Engaging in collaborative and interdisciplinary learning and teaching.
- Re-imagining the ways in which text, images, and data related to the humanities and social sciences can be digitally published and archived.
- Providing a new framework for the ways in which we ask questions, gain and transfer information, and simultaneously teach/learn.
- Working with teachers and students to develop a new lens through which to visualize and draw connections with and between sources and scholarship.
- Publishing original scholarship through online exhibits, collections, and class projects and permanently hosted on DH@HH.
- Making available software and hardware equipment for teachers and students to check-out and providing necessary training to create and edit audio, video, textual, and visual files.
- Extending Digital Humanities in ways that intentionally overlap with STEM, visual arts, fine arts, and "maker spaces" such as Harpeth Hall's Design Den.
