Digital Humanities

This guide provides an overview of Digital Humanities (DH) resources and tools for the SDSU community.

Sample DH Projects

Looking for inspiration? The following are a few really excellent DH projects. If you think there is a project we should add to this page, please email us at

American Panorama “is an historical atlas of the United States for the twenty-first century. It combines cutting-edge research with innovative interactive mapping techniques, designed to appeal to anyone with an interest in American history or a love of maps.”

American Prison Writers Project is a collection of “non-fiction writing by currently incarcerated Americans writing about their experience inside.”


Black Digital Humanities Projects and Resources is a list of projects, resources, events, and anything else. 

Colored Conventions “endeavors to transform teaching and learning about this historic collective organizing effort—and about the many leaders and places involved in it—bringing them to digital life for a new generation of students and scholars across disciplines and for community researchers interested in the history of activist church, civil rights, educational and entrepreneurial engagement.”

Public Secrets “reconfigures the physical, psychological, and ideological spaces of the prison, allowing us to learn about life inside the prison along several thematic pathways and from multiple points of view.”

Surfacing is “a digital mapping project about the undersea network of cables that support our global network society.” 

Torn Apart/Separados “is a deep and radically new look at the territory and infrastructure of ICE’s financial regime in the USA. This data & visualization intervention peels back layers of culpability behind the humanitarian crisis of 2018.”
