Digital Humanities: UNC’s Innovate@Carolina Opens Virtual Lab
From the Daily Tar Heel:
UNC’s Digital Innovation Lab, a part of UNC’s $125 million effort to spur innovation, launched Monday, aimed at sparking collaboration in the digital humanities.
The virtual lab features projects and resources that can be easily used and accessed by large audiences. It will encourage the creation of public projects that have social value
Lab manager Pam Lach said members of the project are interested in the kind of scholarship that reaches out to the community.
The 24 undergraduate and 12 graduate students in the lab will make an impact on the conceptual level, Lach said.
“It really goes beyond those concrete numbers because what we’re really trying to do is change how the humanities are taught, and that’s at every level,” Lach said.
