Digital Humanities

The School of Advanced Study is home to cutting edge research in the digital humanities and promotes the use of digital techniques in the humanities across the United Kingdom.

The School of Advanced Study hosts a wide range of cutting-edge digital humanities research. Many of these initiatives are based within the Digital Humanities Research Hub (DHRH). Colleagues from across the School’s Institutes and Senate House Library also support the development of flagship projects, while providing ongoing research facilitation and support in their specific discipline.
