The Digital Humanities initiative (DHi) at Hamilton College is a collaboratory - digital parlance for a research and teaching collaboration - where new media and computing technologies are used to promote humanities-based teaching, research, and scholarship across the liberal arts.

DHi creates opportunities for new interdisciplinary models and methods of collaboration between faculty and students.

These activities support a fundamental shift in humanities research, leveraging the potential of technology to access and manipulate rich media collections in ways that increase collaborative scholarship (not only within Hamilton humanities but also, potentially, with other institutions around the world) and lead to the generation of new knowledge.

A Robot Named Bridget

(and what she means for the future of archaeology).

by Hannah McLean, DHi Intern

I made a new friend Monday night, March 6, 2017. Her name is Bridget, and she’s a tiny robot who lives inside a virtual version of the DHi lab. I spent about five minutes tossing an orange ball across the table and watching it bounce to the floor as Bridget chased after it. The future is now.
