We run two data schools a year. These take place over a few weeks, are application-only, and aim to democratise access to tools and methods for digital data collection, analysis and reporting, and to foster the development of ethical practices in digital research.

Digital Afterlives

This research network aims to bring scholars together in a critical dialogue around the aims, meanings, and implications of research into the ‘digital afterlife’ within a range of contexts from literary and cultural studies to the history and philosophy of science. It is structured as a termly programme of lectures, presentations, seminars, reading groups, and roundtable discussions, advertised at the start of each term.
