Our research in the digital humanities attracts major funding from the ESRC, AHRC, Modern Humanities Research Association and Welsh Government. It involves collaborations with libraries and archives, charities, Welsh and UK Government. We have a strong track record in developing innovative computer assisted research techniques and online applications.
To develop the digital humanities our researchers in Education, Politics and International Studies, English Language and Literature, Modern Languages and Celtic Studies, Media and Applied Linguistics work with specialists in the University ISS digital humanities team, Computer Science, Human and Health Sciences and Law. This has included projects funded internally by the University Cherish-DE programme and a joint appointment with the Computational Foundry.
Research includes a focus on literary text digitisation; computer assisted language learning and translation; digital media and audience accessibility; combating abuses of online media; digital literacy and curriculum development; and digital platforms and political engagement. In everything we do we seek to enhance individual empowerment in realising the potential of digital technology.
The College has a University research centre on the digital humanities (CODAH) and several research groups that offer research, training and supervision on issues involving computer assisted research techniques and applications.
