Digital Humanities Research Digital Humanities Research


Our research explores the interaction and interpretation of heritage via the design and use of new digital platforms. In so doing, we question mediation processes such as visualisation, creative production and reception methods. Our focus on archives (from textual to born digital, from film to museum collections) allows us to explore how their presentation, with new digital platform interpretations, digitisation challenges, and born digital dilemmas, envisages radical new questions for scholars in the Humanities.

The Digital Humanities Incubator based at UEA seeks to build an academic and shared public understanding of how the “infinite archive” of the digital age is created, constituted and ultimately used. Our network is underpinned by research across the Faculty in user studies, cultural mediation, and creating impact in the cultural heritage sectors.


The success of the UEADHi depends on a vital partnerships that are interdisciplinary, inter-institutional and extend to non-HEI organisations. This aim is to build on existing initiatives to expand their scope, as well as attract researchers to the network.

The diagram below demonstrates how the UEADHi imagines its place within a meshwork of key relationships.



The UEADHi has been set up as the focal point to facilitate digital humanities research and its teaching. Some of the ongoing digital humanities projects are showcased on the right. As the UEADHi develops, we envision a broader profile of research that is seamlessly embedded across the Faculty research.
