Welcome to the NYU Center for the Humanities’ Digital Humanities pages. Our mission is to showcase research by NYU faculty and graduate students, providing a point of connection both within the University and between the university and a broader community to help foster and promote activity in the Digital Humanities.


I strive to uncover invisible, suppressed stories that lie in the geopolitical shadows of colonialism and migration. As the 2016-17 Artist-in-Residence at the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU, I will research the social history of plants via spice routes and botanical expeditions to create a multiplatform project, Rhunhattan.
