HyperStudio, with executive director Kurt Fendt

Fendt: What's really exciting about the work we do in HyperStudio is to explore the possibility -- the potential -- of digital media for learning and research in the humanities and social sciences. [...] In the humanities, we have to be the ones who influence the technical development because we want the tools that are helpful for us. We want specific humanities tools that work in a digital environment so that we can actually do the research and the teaching and the learning that we want to do and are necessary for the humanities.

William Uricchio, Director of MIT Comparative Media Studies: We've digitized amazing amounts of newspapers, books, films, videos, sound...now what? The HyperStudio is both about developing tools and, with those tools, developing new ways to think about those datasets. They're allowing us to push the questions that have driven the humanities since for the last thousand-plus years.
