Cambridge Digital Humanities

 

Doing Research in the Digital Age is the introductory strand of CDH Learning. Our varied programme of events is aimed at making a broad community of researchers – ranging from graduate students to senior academics – familiar with the key concepts, methods and tools required to do research in the digital age.

We showcase digital research which is relevant to their disciplines and interests, organise 'taster' sessions in key methods, and provide opportunities to experiment and work with pre-prepared datasets. This strand is primarily aimed not at researchers who self-identify as 'digital humanists' or who necessarily think of themselves as researching some aspect of 'the digital', but rather at those who want to experiment and explore new methods in order to make better-informed decisions about what to include in their methodological toolkit.

The content of the strand is organised into four themes: Machine Reading the Archive, Ethics of Big Data, Ways of Machine Seeing and Digital Media in Practice. It also includes standalone sessions which are not connected to a single theme or which are relevant to several.

We also run Advanced Workshops - read more about this strand of our programme here

Doing Research in the Digital Age sessions are open to PhD students and staff at the University of Cambridge (including college staff and CUP staff).
