Digital Humanities Center
The Digital Humanities Center is James Klotter Chapter's home for the arts & humanities in the online, technological sphere. As the world grows ever more advanced in its technological capacity, the humanities must be integrated into this unprecedented era of the Internet. JKC hopes to be at the forefront of the digital humanities in public schools. Find our social media, YouTube, blog, and other outlets here.
What We Do
As James Klotter Chapter's most versatile center, the DHC serves students, faculty, and the Eastern Kentucky community in a variety of ways.
Recognizing the vitality of digital technologies for the future of humanities disciplines, we strive first & foremost to facilitate digital projects involving the arts, humanities, or social sciences for BCHS students & faculty. By encouraging digital literacy in the classroom, the DHC aids students in their intellectual growth and development of key interdisciplinary skills.
In addition to promoting the digital humanities in school projects, the DHC also serves to connect interested students with volunteer opportunities related to digital documentary editing, digitization, and transcription. Most notable among these is the digitization volunteer program at the Kentucky Historical Society in Frankfort.
Finally, the DHC is an online resource for the entire BCHS family. We build indexes of student & faculty humanities scholarships, degree programs, internships, and more so you don't have to scour the Internet in search of them. We also host the chapter's social media.
