AADHum brings African American studies and digital humanities together in order to expand upon both fields, making the digital humanities more inclusive of African American history and culture and enriching African American studies research with new methods, archives and tools.

Generously funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the initiative draws on the remarkable faculty, staff, and centers—in the College of Arts and Humanities and across the university—with internationally recognized expertise in the digital humanities and in African American literature, history, and culture. The initiative is co-directed by the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities and the Arts and Humanities Center for Synergy.
