Welcome to Digital Currents, a hub for information about humanities scholarship in and about digital environments at the University of Michigan.
Over the course of the next year, Digital Currents will be presenting a series of conversations, events, and planning sessions. We’ll be bringing to campus thinkers at the forefront of digitally assisted humanities scholarship, new environments of scholarly communication, and cutting-edge work in the cultural studies of digital environments. They will engage Michigan scholars and graduate students working on and in digital environments in public symposia. We’ll also host small-group conversations in which humanities scholars and administrators can explore and strategize on how best to create a “Michigan” model for the cyberinfrastructure to support work on and in digital environments.
