Digital Humanities

The Centre for Digital Humanities brings together staff, students, and external partners working at the intersection of the humanities and technology. With one of the largest concentrations of humanities scholars in the UK, a long tradition of innovation, and an outstanding pool of computational expertise, the University of Manchester is harnessing cutting-edge digital methods and technology to address new research challenges in the humanities. Our research has particular strengths in the spatial humanities, distant reading, digital media studies, science and technology studies, data visualization, heritage digitization, and digital visual culture. Our MA in Digital Media, Culture and Society offers advanced interdisciplinary study in the critique and use of digital media and technology with a particular focus on their cultural and societal implications. The Minor in Digital Humanities allows undergraduate students to lead their subjects in new directions and participate in the key debates of our time.
