Creating the Cultural Archive

The humanities describe the study of how people process and document the human experience and are some of the oldest academic disciplines. Since humans have been able, we have used philosophy, literature, religion, art, music, history and language to understand and record our world. Now those ancient traditions meet the technological and digital age. In addition to offering courses about applied humanities in the workplace, this May the College hosted the first Digital Humanities Research Institute in collaboration with the University of Notre Dame. Funded by a grant, participants of DHRI were faculty and instructors from colleges and universities across the country.

Kaitlin Emmett '20 was among the students who signed up for the four-day Indiana Digital Humanities Research Institute workshop held on Saint Mary's campus. She shared her perspective with Courier. Read here.

Nearly 1,000 alumnae from the 4s and the 9s celebrated their Reunion this summer! They reconnected with classmates and enjoyed the beauty of the campus. There was much to enjoy, especially as this year the Department of Athletics inducted five individuals and two teams into the Athletics Hall of Fame. We also honored four distinguished alumnae at our annual banquet.
