Digital scholarship at Wesleyan encourages the evolution of the liberal arts in the twenty-first century through critical engagements with digital technologies. A hub for faculty, staff, and students, the digital scholarship program supports the Wesleyan community through trainings, consultations, and collaborations to make informed choices about how they will interact with, create, and critique digital technologies in relation to their chosen fields of study and activate student learning.

Interested in starting a project? We'll help you to navigate the options, provide project management and technical expertise during development, as well as the long-term preservation and maintenance of your published work. Please contact Francesca Baird or Rachel Schnepper for assistance.

    Explore the Life of the Budda

    The Life of the Buddha project presents and analyzes for the first time a rare set of monumental seventeenth-century Tibetan murals depicting the Buddha’s life, their related literature, and their architectural and historical settings. The project thus offers scholarly and learning communities the first multimodal tool to research and teach Buddhist images and texts as a meaning-rich whole.
