The CDH advises on research at the intersections of the humanities, data and computation. We are especially interested in projects that center historically-marginalized voices, have public impact, or break new ground in undergraduate and graduate education. Learn more about opportunities to engage and collaborate with us.
CDH staff are available to consult with Princeton faculty, staff and students on a variety of DH research or professional development questions. Note that due to staff availability, we limit consultation time to one hour per month per project.
Princeton scholars applying for grants with a digital humanities component (e.g. Humanities Council Magic Grants, Dean for Research Innovation Funds, NEH Office of Digital Humanities) must speak with us before naming the CDH as a project collaborator or advisor. For feedback on proposals, please reach out to us at least one month before a grant deadline.
