CIRCAh: Cultural Informatics Research Centre for the Arts and Humanities

The CIRCAh research group is part of UCL Department of Information Studies and undertakes research on the application of computing and digital technologies to the arts and humanities.

CIRCAh brings together expertise in digital humanities, user studies, digital libraries, human computer interaction and e-Science. Our location within DIS also allows for collaboration with with colleagues in library and archive studies. This association is vital in the study of cultural informatics, since libraries and archives and museums will be the future repositories for digital information. Thus they have a vital role to play in the understanding of such materials.
