About UEADHi About UEADHi

Digital Humanities at the University of East Anglia - UEADHi

The UEA Digital Humanities Incubator - UEADHi - is a new direction in the university's long established investigations in the Humanities, and is underpinned by research across the Faculty.

The UEADHi seeks to build an academic and shared public understanding of the interaction, mediation, and interpretation of heritage via the design and use of new digital platforms.

Our emphasis on archives - from textual to born digital, from film and museum collections - allows us to explore how their presentation, with new digital platform interpretations, encoding and digitisation challenges, and born digital dilemmas, envisages radical new questions for scholars in the Humanities. Our research explores how the "infinite archive" of the digital age is created, constituted and ultimately used.

As a research network, the UEADHi aims to augment and strengthen Digital Humanities research provision in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, while enhancing capacity for collaboration across the University, and with external partners including East Anglian heritage institutions, the local technology sector, the AURORA Network, CHASE and the Eastern ARC. The network’s strategic objectives are:

  • To develop a coherent identity built on UEA’s key strengths in Digital Humanities;

  • To create an environment that promotes research impact, leading to enhanced collaboration, external grant capture, REF outputs, and postgraduate recruitment;

  • To form a clear point of contact for UEA’s Digital Humanities presence and role within the Eastern ARC, CHASE and AURORA networks.
