The DSG is a collaborative group who works with many groups and organizations across the Northeastern community. We provide services to other groups across campus and co-sponsor events.
NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks
The NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks is Northeastern’s center for Digital Humanities and Computational Social Science. NULab supports faculty research projects; trains graduate students in DH and CSS skills; sponsors talks and symposia; and provides fora for discussions of technology, teaching, and research at Northeastern. It is supported by the College of Social Sciences and Humanities and the College of Computer and Information Sciences.
Northeastern University Visualization Consortium
The Northeastern University Visualization Consortium (NUVis) is an interdisciplinary cross-university initiative to support the university’s research efforts in visualization and to connect faculty, researchers, and students across campus to foster a visualization community. NUVis is supported by the College of Arts, Media and Design and the Khoury College of Computer Sciences.
Northeastern University Archives and Special Collections
The Archives and Special Collections at the Northeastern University Library houses and carefully curates a diverse and growing collection of historical records relating to Boston’s fight for social justice; preserving the history of Boston’s social movements, including civil and political rights, immigrant rights, homelessness, and urban and environmental justice. We focus on the history of Boston’s African American, GLBTQ, Latino/a and other communities, as well as Boston’s public infrastructure, neighborhoods and natural environments.
The DSG supports the creation of digital exhibitions using CERES Exhibit Toolkit within the archives. We also partner with staff members of the archives on special projects and classroom teaching.
