The Humanities Research Bridge is a digital research community at UW that works to collaborate with other institutions and individuals to put together workshops, provide consultations, and spotlight support projects done by graduate students, scholars, and the UW community. The HRB has been working to collaborate with a network of cutting edge digital research and scholars that are interested in humanities projects to put together a pool of resources and tools for digital humanities scholars to utilize, challenge, and engage with. It works with the aid of NEH grants as well as MacArthur Foundation Digital Media & Learning grants.
Many of the current projects that HRB is working on explore narrative networks, character analysis, textualization, and archival work. The project we will be focusing on is the ScripThreads Tool, by Eric Hoyt, Kevin Ponto and Carrie Roy.
