HCA Digital Humanities Research Group

The HCA Digital Humanities Group brings together scholars working with digital technologies across the School. Our objectives are to stimulate inter-disciplinary, collaborative research, and widen awareness of individual scholarship in the digital humanities.

Core strengths within the school include: digital mapping, archaeological and architectural visualisation, digital history, open access databases, e-learning, and using social media for research and engagement. The group includes specialist digital technicians and web developers.

The group organises regular meetings for discussion of digital humanities themes, projects and individual research, and will hold occasional workshops to improve digital skills. It also has an emailing list for regular updates.

If you would like to be a member of this group, or to join the mailing list, please email:
