During the academic year 2012-2013, I conducted a survey about the motivations and practices of digital humanities at small liberal arts colleges. Last month at the annual Digital Humanities Conference, I shared some results of that survey in a panel session on the Future of Undergraduate Digital Humanities, organized by Brian Croxall and Kate Singer. You can see my slides from that presentation here:

Interest in digital humanities, digital scholarship, and digital methodologies is growing at liberal arts colleges. To monitor that growth and explore its implications for liberal arts colleges, the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education (NITLE) is gathering information about digital humanities at small liberal arts colleges. We invite faculty, staff, administrators and others at small liberal arts colleges to complete our online survey on this topic. Please also share the survey with your colleagues. We welcome multiple results from the same institution. Any information you can provide will be appreciated, even if you cannot answer every question.
NITLE Survey on Digital Humanities at Small Liberal Arts Colleges: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NITLEDHSurvey
Results from this survey will update the research on digital humanities at small liberal arts colleges, that went into this publication:
Alexander, Bryan, and Rebecca Frost Davis. “Should Liberal Arts Campuses Do Digital Humanities? Process and Products in the Small College World.” In Debates in the Digital Humanities, edited by Matthew K. Gold. University of Minnesota Press, 2012.
This is a research project being conducted by Rebecca Frost Davis, NITLE Program Officer for the Humanities. Your participation in this research study is voluntary and you may withdraw at any time without penalty. We anticipate that this survey will take no more than 15-20 minutes to complete.
Information from this survey will be used in the following way:
- Aggregate data will be shared with the NITLE network and published openly
- Responses indicating levels of institutional engagement in digital humanities and that would generally be available publicly, e.g., existence of a digital humanities center, courses offered, individual or institutional projects, may be shared with the NITLE network and published openly, under the names of individual institutions
- Individual responses that reflect a respondent’s opinion (qualitative responses) will not be shared, published, quoted, etc., without prior consent although aggregate information about and analysis of such responses may be shared and published
We will do our best to keep your information confidential. All data is stored in a password protected electronic format. The results of this study will be used for scholarly purposes only and may be shared with NITLE representatives.
