Digital Humanities

The Digital Humanities Research Group in the School of English is an umbrella unit for those undertaking research in, or that involves, digital corpora, the creation of digital scholarly editions, the exploration of the relationships between computing technologies and culture, the collation of materials in databases and the application of digital technologies to interrogate or frame literary or performance creative strategies. We aim collectively to reflect critically on, and make the best use of, new technological developments in arts and humanities research, promote the best practice in knowledge transfer activities associated with digital humanities and collaborate with other cognate teams in and beyond the University to develop strategies for digital methodologies for conventional research questions.

The Digital Humanities Research Group currently includes: Martin Butler, Tony Crowley, Fiona Douglas, Alaric Hall, Alison Johnson, James Mussell and Mark Taylor-Batty.
