DIGITAL HUMANITIES PROJECTS
Professor Miller is the founding director of the Dartmouth Vietnam Project (DVP), a student-driven oral history program which documents the memories and experiences of members of the Dartmouth community who lived through the Vietnam War era. The DVP has recorded over 160 interviews with military veterans, antiwar activists, journalists, government officials, healthcare workers, aid experts, and refugees.
He is also the director of the Dartmouth Digital History Initiative (DDHI), a digital humanities project that is developing new tools and methods for encoding and visualizing data contained in oral history interviews.
