The Chesapeake Digital Humanities Consortium (CDHC) is an association of people and institutions committed to the cooperative development of teaching, learning, research, and community partnerships in the digital humanities. Because place and space shape collaboration, CDHC is focused on supporting digital humanities in the D.C, Virginia, and Maryland region.

CDHC has three guiding goals:

With the help of funding from the Associated Colleges of the South, Washington and Lee University, and University of Virginia Scholars’ Lab, the Consortium formed in March 2018 to encourage collaboration across liberal arts colleges and Carnegie classification Research I universities. The scope quickly expanded to focus on people, rather than institutions, in the Washington D.C, Maryland, and Virginia region.

On May 29, 2019, a group met at the University of Richmond to solidify the consortium. At this meeting, we established a governance structure and finalized the statement of purpose. We hope to hold an annual conference in 2020.
