Center for Digital Humanities Opens at SBU Libraries

At a November 7th ribbon cutting event, Stony Brook University Libraries officially opened its Center for Digital Humanities as a space for research, teaching, and learning in all disciplines related to the practice of the digital humanities.

The ribbon cutting event featured remarks by President Bernstein, Dean Fazal, and Jon Heggestad, a PhD candidate in the English Department, followed by a reception and a tour of the Center for Digital Humanities.

The Center, equipped with advanced hardware and software technology, is an intellectual meeting place for researchers applying digital practices to humanistic inquiry and for those using a humanistic lens to examine questions related to technology, in all fields.  The establishment of the Stony Brook University Libraries Center for Digital Humanities was funded in part by a gift from the Gladys Brooks Foundation.
