Our people

DH@Manchester is a network of researchers and computational partners from across the University.

With one of the largest concentrations of humanities scholars in the UK, we are committed to embedding digital methodologies across the institution. Our specialists come from a variety of academic backgrounds, and our University partners include IT Services, Research IT, The University of Manchester Library, The John Rylands Research Institute, the School of Computer Science, and Manchester University Press, as well as several digitally-focussed initiatives.

We also work closely with external organisations in the heritage, creative and tech sectors. Visit our partners page to learn more.
