Start a Project

We are invested in the development of all digital humanities projects at the intersection of faculty teaching and research and student research and learning, including digital scholarly editions, digital textual editing, archiving, publishing, text encoding, mapping projects, and data analysis. If you have a project in mind or under development, and wish it to become a CTSDH project, please fill out our CTSDH On-boarding document. Once it is reviewed, we will follow up to talk to you about the particulars of your project. We are also available for preliminary conversations to talk informally about your project ideas.

What does it mean to be a CTSDH project?

The CTSDH works with Research Project Directors of accepted projects to help them find the different forms of support their projects might need. These may include:

  • Access to server space and web hosting

  • Access to specialized software tools in CTSDH’s labs

  • Development of project road maps and short- and long-term goals

  • Identifying internal and external grants and consulting with grant writing

  • Collaboration and development with CTSDH students and Graduate Fellows. Depending on the project and availability, this support may include: project design and management, grant-writing, promotion, and technical resources

  • Promotion of projects

  • Opportunity to work with graduate students during a dedicated project-based course, DIGH 500: Practicum

If you are interested in proposing a new project, please contact the CTSDH Director, Elizabeth Hopwood (
