The History Hackathon is proudly sponsored by:

History Department
Duke’s History Department ranks among the top fifteen programs in the country. We regard the creation of knowledge as one of the fundamental missions of a research university. Our faculty and students work at the cutting edge of research in their fields and collaborate with colleagues across disciplines and around the world to address society’s biggest challenge. Explore our research here through a lens of major themes, geographical areas of emphasis, and by broad time periods.

Duke University Libraries
The William R. Perkins Library, Bostock Library and Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library comprise the main West Campus library complex, which is joined by Lilly and Music libraries on East Campus, the Pearse Memorial Library at the Duke Marine Lab and the separately administered libraries serving the schools of Business, Divinity, Law and Medicine. Together they form one of the nation’s top ten private university library systems.

Rubenstein Library
The David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library is a place of exploration and discovery. For more than 100 hundred years, scholars have used these deep collections to write new histories, explore significant lives, study ecological change, trace the evolution of texts, understand cultural shifts and create new art and literature.

Duke Undergraduate Research Support Office
The Undergraduate Research Support Office (URS) provides grants and assistantships for undergraduate research projects, creative arts projects, travel to research conferences, and summer research programs.
