The DHRX is a cross-campus faculty research network designed to highlight innovative, digitally-focused academic work at the University of Pittsburgh. Bringing together researchers from a broad range of disciplinary backgrounds, the network is dedicated to exploring the creative use of digital technologies in humanities and social science research.

Currently, a major goal of the DHRX is to help build community. The members of the network are frequently in contact with one another and the group meets as a whole once per semester to discuss issues and challenges specific to digital making.

We are enthusiastic about the ways that digital technology can expand, reconfigure, and enrich our understanding of the relationship between academic inquiry and the social world.

For further information or to find out more about joining the network, please feel free to contact Alison Langmead, Principal Contact for the DHRX at dhrx@pitt.edu.
