Digital Humanities Research Digital Humanities Research


Our research explores the interaction and interpretation of heritage, society and the arts via the design and use of new digital platforms. In so doing, we question mediation processes such as visualisation, digitisation, creative production and reception methods. We also engage with participatory media and the ability to gather data from social media domains. These data offer potentially transformative, supra-geographic and non-temporal written and visual information about people's lives and attitudes to society, culture and the media.

The Digital Humanities Incubator also 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.
