Writing, Information, and Digital Experience: WIDE Research Center


At Michigan State University, the WIDE (Writing, Information, and Digital Experience) Research Center focuses on researching and innovating experiences for emerging technologies in the Digital Humanities, including uses of social user experiences to solve social, cultural, and political problems; ways of constructing computational analytics for improving persuasive communication, and the need to create new forms of public engagement and democratic practice on a global scale. The outcomes of our research projects include publications and applications aimed at enriching these conversations. The following are our current areas of focus: Participatory Memory, Computational Rhetoric, Writing Program Assessment, Clinical Healthcare Experiences, and Legal Experiences.
