Digital Humanities

The US Latino Digital Humanities (USLDH) program at Recovering the US Hispanic Literary Heritage serves as a venue for scholarship focused on the US Latino written legacy that has been lost, absent, repressed or underrepresented. The USLDH project will provide a physical space for the development, support and training in digital humanies projects using a vast collection of newspapers, photographs and digital materials; create opportunities and facilities for digital publication of Latino-based projects and scholarship; promote and foster interdisciplinary scholarly work; provide a communal virtual space to share knowledge and projects related to Latino digital humanities; and establish a Latino digital humanities hub.

In order to foster a network of scholars focused on US Latino digital humanities, we created the hashtag, #usLdh.
