USM Digital Humanities (USMDH) is an interdisciplinary initiative that extends the range and scope of scholarship, research, and creative activity at USM through innovative uses of digital technologies, extramural partnerships, and community engagement.

USMDH links humanities research and creativity with the work of technology companies, non-profit organizations, and small and big businesses. It seeks to provide opportunities for students and faculty to integrate academic study with work experiences, while developing mutually beneficial extramural partnerships.


Digital Maine brings together artists and scholars who share an interest in doing Maine-based research and creative activity.

Culture, Commerce, and the Environment: Iceland, Maine, and the North Atlantic aims to represent the cultures, histories, and narratives of Iceland and the North Atlantic in research, integrate digital tools into pedagogy, and share the results through scholarly and public presentations of the work.

USMDH is involved in integrating multimodality and digital rhetoric in writing courses in the Core Curriculum.

Members of Digital Humanities Research Cluster work in the fields of Art, Computer Science, Economics, English, History, Geography, and Library Science, and Political Science.
