I have been teaching U.S. and regional history for 25 years, 16 of them at Wake Forest, and I have always been interested in the ways learning about the past can help students engage more fully in the communities around them. My recent partnership with students, staff, and community members on documenting the history of St. Benedict the Moor Catholic Church, and my introduction to the Digital Humanities work of my colleagues through the DH Community’s DH Kitchen, has opened my eyes to the sharing of information and the building of broader communities that making humanities work digital invites.
Our goalThe DH Community is a program of Wake Forest's Humanities Institute. We are faculty from across campus interested in investigating the emergence of digital humanities as a field of study, and its relevance and usefulness as a research and teaching tool in the humanities.
