Scholarship in the Digital Humanities brings digital tools to bear on traditional humanistic areas of study and prompts critical reflection, in the best tradition of the humanities, on the digital mediation of modern life. The Digital Humanities Initiative supports digital humanities projects in research, teaching, and public outreach at Rutgers. Their programming includes a regular schedule of events, including workshops, lectures, and conferences.
The Rutgers IRB protects the rights and welfare of human research subjects while facilitating ethical research. The Rutgers Office of Research and Sponsored Programs provides subject matter expertise and administrative support to the IRB committee itself, which is comprised mostly of Rutgers faculty who are also researchers. In addition, the IRB includes individuals with expertise who are not part of the Rutgers community, as required by the federal regulations governing research with humans. Review by the IRB is required for research involving human subjects regardless of the funding source, and also covers human research without funding.
