Digital Studies at UT Austin
I am part of a group of faculty members that has started both an undergraduate and a graduate curricular specialization in the digital studies (here). I am also a member of the team that organized a "Pop-Up Institute" on Digital Humanities at UT Austin, which met in June 2017 to outline an organized research unit in DH at UT Austin.
Graduate Portfolio in Digital Studies
If you are a graduate student at UT Austin, no matter the discipline, and you are interested in Digital Humanities/Digital Studies, then you might want to look into taking the DS Portfolio program, which I direct. You can find all the info about this program on the Portfolio's website: https://liberalarts.utexas.edu/ds/graduate/ds-portfolio/.
TILTS 2010/11: "The Digital and the Human(ities)"
In the 2010/11 academic year, I co-directed the Texas Institute for Literary and Textual Studies (TILTS). TILTS is a series of year-long institutes with changing themes, hosted by the UT English Department. Our institute has a website. Together with the other co-director of TILTS, Matt Cohen, I have edited a special issue of Texas Studies in Language and Literature on the digital humanities as a site for possible convergence between literary and linguistic scholarship.
