DePauw students and faculty members regularly use digital evidence and methods in their scholarship. Whether digging deeply into patterns within the corpus of digitized medieval texts, developing a multidimensional atlas of a city, or using new-media to bring rural Indiana stories of poverty out of the shadows, DePauw scholars are always exploring the intersections of scholarly work and digital tools/methods.
