Digital Humanities

Huge collections of study material are available to humanities researchers  

Though getting access to, processing, analysing & deriving knowledge from such collections is difficult due to limited availability of dedicated tools. Our ADS researchers within Digital Humanities have a number of ongoing projects which seek to develop these tools. Our researchers span multiple faculties and knowledge institutions:

and have strong connections with local industry.
