Cambridge Digital Humanities


The Cambridge Digital Humanities Network was the predecessor of Cambridge Digital Humanities, and it remains an essential part of our activities today. The Network was set up in 2011 with funding from the University's Research Policy Committee as part of a series of Strategic Research Initiatives and Networks, designed to encourage research across disciplinary and institutional boundaries.

Strategic Research Initiatives and Networks build on areas of existing research strength by bringing together a critical mass of expertise from across the Schools, with four key aims:

  • to address large-scale multi-disciplinary research challenges
  • to strengthen research collaborations and knowledge transfer across disciplines
  • to increase research capacity and profile by providing a platform for large-scale funding applications, recruitment and international research partnerships
  • to enhance the University's ability to help shape national and international research, policy and funding agendas.

The networking activities of Cambridge Digital Humanities, such as organising events, building links between scholars from different disciplines, sharing information and developing a sense of community across the University around digital humanities research, are now carried out across all four divisions.

The Cambridge Digital Humanities Network Coordinator is Dr Anne Alexander, and the co-Directors of the Network are Professor Simon Goldhill and Professor Andrew Webber.
