The Lab

The Lab for Cultural Criticism was started in 2015 to provide a home for work on digital humanities methods and computational criticism at Dartmouth College. We are interested in theoretical and practical work that expands our understanding of humanistic approaches to text and to computation.

The Lab for Cultural Criticism uses advanced computational techniques to study culture. We develop tools, methods, and theory-informed critiques for the digital humanities. Building on years of work in high-performance scientific computing, our lab takes advanced tools and applies them to cultural texts from literary classics to the code that makes up popular software packages. We continually ask difficult methodological questions in order to help define the type and scope of projects undertaken by those working within the digital humanities.
