The UH Digital Arts and Humanities Initiative (DAHI) explores the full potential of today’s digital resources and capabilities in the broad realm of the Arts and Humanities. The chief goal of the initiative is to provide open access for state-of-the-art instances of digital media, scholarship and performance. The DAHI community creates an environment of trust, so that faculty, students and community members with ideas can find collaborators and access resources to pursue a range of cross-disciplinary and multimedia projects.
- multi-layered digitally-encoded text and translation projects
- data mining and visualization
- computer-mediated teaching and pedagogy (map)
- mapping artistic and humanistic spaces and temporal conceptions
- computer mediated mini-conferences, exhibitions and events
- social media
- new media studies
- media literacy training
- collaborative learning and authoring
- software creation
- textual, database, and multimedia archives.
All DAHI projects are undertaken in a framework of shared resources and modularity that is referred to as “I/O.” Today I/O is conceptual, but the goal is to implement a set of behaviors and practices integrated by software support that facilitates the translation and transformation of all DAHI performances.
