CHC Vision

It is crucial that researchers help integrate traditional humanistic values with internet culture. Characteristic of the age of print, those values have receded into the background in today’s culture of multi-tasking and nonlinear reception. Our twofold challenge is to digitize the humanities while ‘humanizing’ the digital environment.
