Digital Humanities

Improved access to data, digitised collections, and digital tools make it possible to ask humanities questions in new ways.

Digital Humanities (DH) blends traditional humanities research with digital technologies. Digital approaches apply new methods and technologies to humanities questions, and ask new questions that might not have previously been possible. Digital humanities also applies critical inquiry to new technologies, including the way people use and are affected by them. 

The University Library supports digital research in the humanities by providing data access, learning opportunities, and supporting essential tools for digital scholarship, as well as hosting a series of Digital Humanities Lab events. These resources provide an introduction to tools, data, and communities of interest if you’re getting started in digital scholarship in the humanities.

The Library encourages those interested exploring Digital Humanities further to contact the Manager, Digital Innovation.
