Digital Humanities Centre, Lancaster
Lancaster’s Digital Humanities Centre brings together internationally recognised centres of excellence in the spatial humanities, corpus linguistics and natural language processing, and combines these with broad expertise across the digital humanities as a whole.
The Centre draws on expertise from across Lancaster University, particularly from the following departments and centres:
- Computing and Communications
- English and Creative Writing
- Linguistics and English Language
- Corpus Approaches to Social Science
- University Centre for Computer Corpus Research on Language
The Centre hosts an MA in Digital Humanities and has PhD students studying a range of inter-disciplinary topics and are keen to recruit more. It can provide access to an excellent range of digital resources to researchers and students, and has a very active research community that runs a range of conferences, forums and seminar series. In addition, the Centre offers short courses in a range of topics in Digital Humanities through the Lancaster Summer Schools series.
Recent projects have been funded by: the European Research Council, the Andrew M. Mellon Foundation, the Leverhulme Trust, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the Economic and Social Research Council, COST, the US National Endowment for the Humanities, the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Newby Trust. Members are strongly involved in collaborative work with non-academic organisations in the local region – which includes the Lake District – as well as with national and international organisations.
