Digital Anthropology refers to the intersection of anthropological scholarship and various digital technologies. Anthropologists have routinely been "early adopters" of these technologies, leading to new approaches to and new questions in anthropological scholarship.

At UNL, members of the Department of Anthropology are rely on digital technologies for scholarship, teaching, and advancement of anthropological discourse and inbvestigation. We

  • teach students to use digital tools in their field and laboratory research;
  • support faculty digital projects independent of and in cooperation with the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities;
  • facilitate department-wide digital projects that allow students and faculty to cooperate on common research; and
  • explore how such technologies enable a wider and deeper sharing of anthropological findings.
