Digital Humanities at Missouri

at the DIGITAL HUMANITIES COMMONS @ THE ALLEN INSTITUTE

The Digital Humanities Commons @ the Allen Institute is housed in 8,000 square feet of space on the first floor of London Hall at 501 S. 6th Street. The building is located across from the Academic Support Center and a short walk from Ellis Library, humanities departments, and the Colleges of Engineering and Education. Across the hall from the DHC is the Information Experience Laboratory, MU’s usability testing facility which is available to arts and humanities faculty.

A recent renovation created a top tier facility for collaborative research using technology, including a reception area, informal meeting space for small groups, a number of graduate student and faculty work stations, the “CoLab” — a high tech laboratory for research, online teaching, and virtual meetings — a wired conference room, and spaces conducive to working for long stretches such as a kitchen and comfortable break area.

The open plan workspaces that can be reconfigured to suit different projects so that teams can be grouped together to facilitate easy collaboration. We are also in process of building a course capture studio for experimentation and for creating high quality online courses.

The reception desk is staffed during office hours. Members of the DH Commons community have key cards for 24 hour access. We are delighted to host tours and receptions for visiting colleagues and guests.
