Reimagining a Collaborative, Sustainable Student-Focused Digital Humanities Initiative

Carter received his PhD at the University of Missouri-Columbia and is currently the Director of the Center for Digital Humanities and an Associate Professor in Africana Studies, at the University of Arizona. He specializes in African American literature of the 20th Century with a primary focus on the Harlem Renaissance. His research also focuses on Digital Humanities/Africana Studies. He has published numerous articles on his doctoral project, Virtual Harlem, an immersive representation of a portion of Harlem, NY as it existed during the 1920s Jazz Age and Harlem Renaissance. Dr. Carter’s research centers on how the use of traditional and advanced interactive and immersive technologies changes the dynamic within the learning space.

The keynote is part of the 2024 DH@UH program, an initiative of the Digital Humanities Core facility, a partnership between UH Libraries and UH Hewlett-Packard Enterprise Data Science Institute. This year’s program includes a student digital research showcase on March 25.
