Jointly-sponsored by the Dietrich College and Humanities and Social Sciences and the University Libraries, dSHARP (digital Sciences, Humanities, Arts: Research and Publishing) is a virtual center for a coalition of faculty and staff dedicated to advancing research and teaching involving digital scholarship–the use and reuse of digital evidence, methods, and tools for research, pedagogy, and publication. We have been working to form partnerships with the other colleges and units around campus, and have had initial successes with the BXA interdisciplinary design program and the Center for Creative Inquiry in the CFA, as well as with the Departments of English and Modern Languages within the Dietrich College. We are also on the ground floor of new the XR (AR, VR, MR) Special Interest Group, working with faculty in the Entertainment Technology Center (ETC) and others.
dSHARP has been involved in bringing several events, workshops, grants, alongside other opportunities for both faculty, students, and staff around. We create, engage, and support the local digital humanities/scholarship community. We build websites, databases, and data analysis pipelines, and running research projects (Create); educate and involve the community in digital scholarship (Engage); and offer resources that would support students, faculty, and staff in achieving research goals (Support).
