Digital Work, Student Research, and the Tenure Track

Working in Digital Humanities and Classics at the Small Undergraduate University

The graduating Ph.D. will naturally understand Digital Humanities as it is organized at research-intensive universities: as a large-scale enterprise based in a ‘Centre’ or ‘Program’, often with its own programming staff, a teaching curriculum and long-standing relationship across the Humanities and Computer Science.

Certainly students of Greco-Roman culture in the United States and Europe have various pragmatic reasons, political and economic alike, to recognize the importance of Classical Arabic, Chinese, Sanskrit, Persian and other cultural languages from beyond Europe.
