Funded by the SSHRC Major Collaborative Research Initiatives Program, INKE has been described as an interdisciplinary initiative spawned in the methodological commons of the digital humanities that seeks to understand the future of reading and the book through a historical perspective. For this essential work, INKE brings together researchers and stakeholders at the forefront of computing in the humanities, text analysis, information studies, usability and interface design into a network comprised of those who are best-poised to understand the nature of the human record as it intersects with the computer. Presently, INKE is transitioning from two key research groupings (Modelling and Prototyping and Interface Design) to four interrelated clusters: Connection, Training, Community, and Policy.

Please see our future directions for more information on how INKE is evolving.
