Launched at Hamilton College in 2015, with initial funding from the Mellon Foundation, ILiADS began as a collaboration among a handful of liberal arts colleges and universities. Entering its sixth year, ILiADS has seen more than 40 such institutions send 60 teams comprised of faculty, students, and staff to work on digital projects. During this time, it has become a robust traveling summer institute supported by a network of institutional sponsors.
ILiADS is more than a week-long opportunity for teams to focus their efforts: it has become a network of expertise, colleagues, and projects that demonstrate the scholarly and pedagogical impact of the digital liberal arts.
PLEASE NOTE: ILiADS 2020 has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 public health crisis. More details for ILiADS 2021 will be shared as they become available.
