Cambridge Digital Humanities


Cambridge Digital Humanities comprises a large team of people who contribute to its work. CDH's Director, Professor Caroline Bassett, works closely with those responsible for three of its various divisions – Dr Anne Alexander (CDH Learning), Lesley Gray and James Hargrave (CDH Lab), and Professors Lauren Kassell and Andrew Webber (CDH Research). Sarah Williams is in charge of Communications and Liaison, in addition to providing operational support, and Karen Herbane coordinates CDH's events and learning programme.

The CDH Lab has its own team, including a DH Coordinator (Huw Jones) and Development support provided by the University Library and University Information Services who together provide the project incubation support and other high-level advice to which the Lab is dedicated.

At present there are five CDH Methods Fellows – Julie Blake, Mary Chester-Kadwell, Dr Oliver Dunn, Leonardo Impett and Dr Hugo Leal – who contribute to the CDH Learning programme and who mentor projects supported by CDH. 

CDH Learning and the Network receive additional administrative support from CRASSH (Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities), while CDH as a whole benefits considerably from the input of staff in the School of Arts and Humanities, which is its administrative host.

CDH's work is overseen by a Steering Committee chaired by the Chair of the School of Arts and Humanities and with representatives from CRASSH, CUDAR, CUP, UL, UIS, Research Operations, and three of the University's constituent Schools – Technology, Humanities and Social Sciences, and Arts and Humanities. There are additional steering groups for each of the four divisions.

Finally, there are hundreds of colleagues in the University of Cambridge who have either been members of the DH Network or who have been active in DH-related research. Their collective contributions have helped to generate 'critical mass' in the field both locally and beyond the University itself.
