The University of Denver's Institute for the Digital Humanities will offer scholars the opportunity to explore the benefits of incorporating interactive media into interdisciplinary collaboration and public dissemination of research. Fellows will be given training and mentoring in the use of digital tools for data analysis and presentation, social collaboration and authorship, and/or research production and dissemination in relation to projects of their own choosing. This is a non-residential fellowship program, although participation is required in two on-campus events at the beginning (June 2011) and end (September 2012) of the 18-month fellowship period, as well as in one video teleconference at the fellowship's midpoint (December 2011).

The interdisciplinary Digital Media Studies program at the University of Denver is renowned for innovative teaching, scholarship, and creative work in the digital humanities, with particular areas of strength in public good and in internationalization efforts. Established in 1997, the Digital Media Studies program is one of the oldest of its kind in the world. Housed in the Department of Media, Film & Journalism Studies (MFJS), the program is a partnership among MFJS and Art & Art History and offers courses at the graduate and undergraduate level in cutting-edge design and production of multimedia/digital media while investigating social, political, legal, cultural and individual issues relating to their uses. The program has a history of building dialogue between scholars and the public, such as through its Digital Media Outreach Center, its collaboration with the University's Estlow International Center for Journalism and New Media, and its work with the University's Center for Civic Engagement and Service Learning.
