New scales of information require new modes of questioning. We are dedicated to the investigation of new modes of scholarly inquiry and communication.
Students need to learn how to live thoughtfully in a digital world. We advance the digital literacy of faculty and instructors so they can improve the understanding of their students.
Whether through code or design, making is central to the digital world. We encourage a critical engagement with the tools and techniques of contemporary creative activity.
The humanities and social sciences have at their core a set of questions that address, in the simplest terms, what it is like to be human. Those of us who work and teach in these areas use discipline-specific and interdisciplinary tools to answer these questions and to teach our students how to discover and communicate answers of their own. Due to rapid advances in information technology, we now encounter information at tremendously increased scales and speeds, yet these questions have not changed.
To continue asking what it is like to be human in this age of information, faculty and students at the University of Idaho need to develop new knowledge and new techniques for analyzing data, understanding and interpreting the resulting information and knowledge, and distributing these understandings in ways that take advantage of our digital connectedness.
Engaging the virtual through the local and vice versa.
