Digital Humanities Now is an experimental, edited publication that highlights and distributes informally published digital humanities scholarship and resources from the open web. Since 2009, DHNow has been refining processes of aggregation, discovery, curation, and review to open and extend conversations about the digital humanities research and practice.

Get Involved at UCI!


The UCI Digital Humanities Exchange (DHX) explores formats for digital work that respond to local institutional culture, research strengths, regional opportunities, national trends, and resource realities. Approaching the digital culture of scholarly work with a sense of adventure, UCI DHX participants explore and implement new tools for collaboration, research and publication in the humanities, encouraging experimentation and creative play with digital, social media and computing tools. The Digital Humanities Exchange regards digital technology not as an end in itself, but as a means toward building depth, synergy, and visibility for UCI’s humanities research enterprises.
