World Languages and Digital Humanities Studio

The World Languages & Digital Humanities Studio (previously known as the Center for World Languages) is located in the J.B. Hunt Center for Academic Excellence building in room 207, next to Kimpel Hall. Through events and research initiatives, the WLDH Studio explores the intersection of digital technology and the humanities, with special attention to the study of world cultures. The WLDH Studio team is dedicated to innovative pedagogy and research along with the meaningful integration of digital media and tools in the classroom.

As of fall 2022, the WLDH Studio has been holding workshops dedicated to student success and the exploration of immersive VR technology and environments to assist with the acquisition and study of world languages.  The Studio is equipped with eight computers, a color printer, two HDMI-compatible TV monitors, and is currently building a podcast booth.
