Launching the Digital Humanities Lab

The Digital Humanities Lab in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences will create a physical and virtual hub for UF’s humanities researchers who work with big data, augmented reality, and digital storytelling tools. The lab will also help humanities students gain critical skills necessary for the modern workforce.

“We are now in a knowledge and technology revolution that is transforming higher education and the global economy,” said David Richardson, Ph.D., dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. “Every liberal arts discipline is redefining its methods and asking new research questions, and the humanities are no exception.

Support from University of Florida Ben Sasse's strategic funding initiative was awarded to help create the Digital Humanities Lab.
