The Digital Humanities Lab hosts Omeka and Omeka S projects, which allows students and faculty to showcase cultural heritage collections and build digital exhibition content. Do you have a research project? Do you want to make into a sharable collection or exhibit? We can support the project from start to finish, and we find Omeka an especially good platform for student and class-based projects.
Many humanists and social scientists who engage cultural topics use space and place as an analytic lens in their work. As a member of the Taylor Geospatial Institute, UMSL’s Geospatial Collaborative is one of the ways that mapping is supported on campus. The DH lab helps faculty and students pose spatial research questions and visualize their data in a variety geospatial platforms.
Audiovisual media is an important source of data for the digital humanities, and our lab supports a variety of initiatives related to this work. We offer digital oral history project support by lending zoom audio recording kits, video cameras and tripods, and providing project archival support through the OHMS digital oral history platform, and our students and faculty have contributed to a number of community-based audio and video projects as well.
