Are you our new User Experience Designer?

The CDH is hiring! We are looking for a curious, committed, and collegial colleague to join our Development and Design Team as our User Experience Designer. The UX Designer collaborates with faculty, students and library partners using the design process (site flow, wireframes, user research, art design) to ensure that each project reaches its full potential in scholarly and technical innovation.

Bridging Digital Humanities Internal And Open Source Software Projects Through Reusable Building Blocks

Software development is often an integral aspect of Digital Humanities projects. By working to generalize and build small modules or utilities targeting specific needs rather than large-scale systems, DH software developers have the capacity to generate tools with greater potential for scholarly reuse, which should enable more rapid development on future projects, and allow developers to focus on innovative work.

The CDH at DH2018

Members of the CDH staff and affiliated faculty and students are currently at DH2018, the 2018 Digital Humanities Conference taking place in Mexico City this year.

Meet our New Digital Humanities Developer, Nick Budak

I'm Nick Budak, the new Digital Humanities Developer at the CDH. I'm a self-taught developer with a degree in Asian Studies who is interested in building interactive, beautiful interfaces for DH projects. Lately I've been fascinated with the functional programming paradigm, especially in the context of functional reactive programming in modern JavaScript. Exciting progress is being made every day in the world of web development, and I hope to bring some cutting-edge tools and methods to the CDH.
