trans-disciplinary partnerships. This individual will work closely with the
Faculty Director and advisory board to develop and support the infrastructure
and intellectual community of the Digital Humanities Center in the short- and

organizations in the United States and abroad.


The Associate Director will work closely with the Office of Corporate and
