Texas A&M’s digital humanities initiative was established by Maura Ives, Amy Earhart, Patrick Burkart, et. al., via a whitepaper submitted to the upper administration which is available here.
The whitepaper was accepted , and the Initiative for Digital Humanities, Media, and Culture (IDHMC) was established as one of eight IUMRI’s or Landmark Research Areas to receive major university funding as part of its Academic Master Plan. In 2018, the Initiative was approved to become the Center of Digital Humanities Research (CoDHR) by the Texas A&M Board of Regents.
