Through the ADHC, faculty, staff, and advanced students can explore digital resources, reflect on the possibilities and challenges of new technologies, consult with experts about project development and digital research, and collaborate on innovative research and teaching projects. We also host events, such as workshops, talks, and lunch discussions, for those interested in learning more about the field of digital humanities and those already involved in digital work. UA faculty, staff, and graduate students may register to access the space for project work after reviewing our policies.

Our mission is to:
  • Encourage and engage faculty and graduate students in art, humanities, and performing arts digital research.
  • Support exploration and application of technology to arts and humanities research and teaching.
  • Provide a venue for collaborative development and hosting of research projects.
