Riepe's Digital Humanities Residential Community will be home for students who are excited by the varied and exciting intersections between arts and culture (including literature, manuscripts, visual arts, linguistics, music, history, and archaeology) and continually evolving digital technologies. These technologies are rapidly opening entirely new sets of questions about humanistic materials, from texts to artifacts and beyond—and continually suggesting new methodologies for approaching them. Whether recovering erased medieval texts via spectral imaging, digitally reconstructing architectural or archaeological history, confronting large cultural questions by analyzing large sets of digitized data, students will be introduced to a vast array of skill-sets and potential research projects in all areas traditionally (and sometimes, non-traditionally) associated with the Humanities. This community will offer a perfect, authentic, cutting-edge blend of disciplines and intellectual realms!
