 Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities. The purpose of this program is to support national or regional (multistate) training programs for scholars, humanities professionals, and advanced graduate students to broaden and extend their knowledge of digital humanities. Through this program, NEH seeks to increase the number of humanities scholars and practitioners using digital technology in their research and to broadly disseminate knowledge about advanced technology tools and methodologies relevant to the humanities.

Institutes may address a wide range of topics, such as but not limited to:
• digital scholarly communication and publishing
• advanced geospatial applications
• artificial intelligence and its use in text, sound, or image analysis
• physical computing, such as three-dimensional printing and wearable computing, and their implications for humanities research and public engagement
• immersive and virtual environment design for humanities research, or for computer gaming or simulations as applied to the humanities
• information aesthetics and approaches to visualizations of humanities topics and research
• creative approaches to implementing digital humanities methods at institutions with specific needs, such as community colleges, liberal arts colleges, or minority-serving institutions
• innovative approaches for engaging public audiences with digital humanities
• high-performance computing or supercomputing applicable for humanities research and teaching
• critical algorithm studies
• analysis of and research on the impact of digital media and culture on society, including the intersection of digital methodologies and race, gender, class, and ability
