Digital Humanities is an important multidisciplinary field, undertaking research at the intersection of digital technologies and humanities. It aims to produce applications and models that make possible new kinds of research, both in the humanities disciplines and in computer science and its allied technologies. It also studies the impact of these techniques on cultural heritage, memory institutions, libraries, archives, and digital culture.
The Centre for Digital Humanities is able to capitalise on UCL's world-leading strength in information studies, computer science, and the arts and humanities. It brings together work being done in the many different departments and centres at UCL. Our location in central London, surrounded by the greatest concentration of libraries and professional bodies in Europe, also makes it an ideal base for collaboration with organisations outside UCL, such as museums, galleries, libraries and archives.
