Welcome to the Digital Humanities Center

The Digital Humanities Center at San Diego State University Library (LA 61) is an interdisciplinary hub for the campus Digital Humanities Initiative and "Digital Humanities and Global Diversity" Area of Excellence. The center supports research, teaching, and learning that values the importance of the humanities, and the interactions of humans in real time and space, in the digital age. Learn more about digital humanities.

The DH Center welcomes faculty, staff, students, and community members from across the disciplines and spanning the technological spectrum, from the skeptics, to the curious, to the consumers and producers/makers/civic hackers of digital technologies. We officially opened our doors during the Spring 2018 semester. Curious about the process of creating a DH Center? Follow our progress here.

Undergraduate and graduate students from across the disciplines are invited to fill out this brief survey to let us know what sort of skills you're interested in acquiring. We can also connect you to students with similar or complementary skills and interests to help you advance your digital project idea.

Interested in hosting a DH activity or event in our space? Please review our Usage Request Policy.

DH Studios

The DH Center is home to several studios to engage in digital inquiry:

  • Multimedia Practice Presentation Studio
  • Learning Glass One Button Recording Studio
  • DIY Podcasting Studio (2)
  • Electronic Literature Studio
  • AR/VR/New Media Production Studio 

SDSU community members can request to use our studios once we re-open.

We also offer a Mind, Body & Spirit room for quiet contemplation and reflection, available on a first come, first served basis throughout the day (not reservable). 

Hours of Operation

The Digital Humanities Center is open 10am-4pm Monday through Friday most days during the academic year, except when there is a DH-sponsored activity. Our Activities & Events page lists upcoming public activities (private events and instruction sessions are typically not listed). Please also check the Library Hours Calendar for specific closures.‚Äč

We welcome a range of activities in our space, including scholarly talks and lectures, SDSU class visits, interactive workshops, showcases, and exhibits. We ask that all activities hosted in our space be open to the campus and, when appropriate, the broader public.
