Arts and Humanities Research Computing, informally known as Digital Arts and Humanities (DARTH), provides consultation, instruction, and technical development for the digital research initiatives of faculty, staff, and students. We work at all stages of the research data lifecycle, but particularly excel at modeling complex humanities data, helping faculty organize and analyze their data, and building innovative web platforms that showcase and visualize the results. In addition, DARTH sponsors lectures, workshops, and symposia related to emerging trends in technology for artistic creation and scholarship.

As an integral part of HUIT Academic Technology, DARTH partners closely with the FAS Academic Technology Group, the Harvard Library, the Harvard Art Museums, the Digital Scholarship Support Group (DSSG), and various other individuals and organizations on and off campus to share ideas, pioneer common standards, and advocate for the unique priorities of a networked university.
