What is the DDHI?
The Dartmouth Digital History Initiative is an open-source digital humanities project launched in 2019 at Dartmouth College. The DDHI is developing new ways of researching, visualizing, analyzing, and representing the contents of digital oral history archives.
DDHI receives major grant
The DDHI has been selected to receive a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The award, which totals $400,000 in NEH outright and matching funds, is a Digital Humanities Advancement Grant (Level III). The grant will run for two years, beginning in early 2023, and will fund an exciting new collaboration between Dartmouth and the University of Kentucky.
DDHI to begin first external collaboration
During the winter of 2022, the DDHI will begin the first application of its methods and tools to a project outside of Dartmouth College. We are excited to collaborate with partners at the Vietnam Center and Sam Johnson Vietnam Archive at Texas Tech University to encode 50 interviews from their collection. This will be the first opportunity to test the compatibility of our tools with other oral histories.
DDHI seeking new student research associates for spring 2021
The DDHI is opening applications for Dartmouth student research associates to join our team for the spring 2021 term. Students applying for the spring term will also have an opportunity to continue their participation in the project during the 2021-2022 academic year. If interested, Dartmouth students should visit the student research associate program page to find out more information about requirements and the application process. Please don't hesitate to email the DDHI (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions about the project or the position.
