About 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 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 (email@example.com) if you have any questions about the project or the position.
DDHI Team Ramps Up Encoding
The DDHI has brought on its largest cohort of student research associates to start the fall 2020 term. We plan to tag a large batch of interviews from the Dartmouth Vietnam Project so we have a corpus of TEI-encoded interviews to test our DDHI data visualization toolkit. Research associates will also help develop training materials for future users. We are excited to have returning and new research associates as we prepare to share our tools with potential users outside of Dartmouth.
