From 2018–2021, the Humanities Research Institute (HRI) housed Training in Digital Methods for Humanists (TDMH), hosting a new cohort of faculty fellows each year. TDMH fellows received two course releases allowing them the opportunity to take already established classes on campus and develop their digital methods and digital humanities skills. Additionally, fellows had both an equipment and workshop budget, the latter funding training in external summer programs.
Fellows met regularly during their TDMH year to foster interdisciplinary conversations, discuss opportunities for collaboration, and share their experiences, challenges, and successes. Lastly, each fellow had an assigned mentor, either an established digital humanist on campus or a former fellow, to guide them through the process and offer opportunities for consultation.
The TDMH archive site functions as a digital archive of the initiative, documenting the experiences of TDMH fellows, mentors, and leaders.
