Re:Humanities was established in fall 2010 as the first national digital humanities conference of, for, and by undergraduates.

Supported by Haverford, Bryn Mawr, and Swarthmore Colleges and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation-supported Tri-College Digital Humanities Initiative, the conference invites undergraduate researchers to present original contributions to the developing field of digital humanities–applying traditional humanities questions to computing technologies, and vice versa. Re:Humanities '15 will take place in April of 2015.
