Through its events the Humanities Council strives to enhance understanding of and support for scholarship and teaching in the Humanities and fosters a community in which the value of the Humanities is understood and discussed.

Ongoing Events

Appalachian State Digital Humanities Working Group

The Digital Humanities Working Group meets every other week—this Fall semester, they have been meeting on Fridays at 1pm. They will probably stick to that schedule, but will adjust based on availability. The group serves as a gathering for faculty, staff, and students interested in collaborating on digital humanities initiatives and digital scholarship projects. Right now they are working on a speaker series for the spring and a mini-conference in the fall, and are preparing to submit for a couple of NEH grants.

For more information or to join the group, contact Mark Nunes, the Chair of Cultural, Gender, and Global Studies at or 828-262-3178.
