Digital Humanities Lab Utrecht

Utrecht University's Faculty of Humanities houses ample expertise in the field of Digital Humanities, which is combined in the Digital Humanities Lab. Digital Humanities ‘Utrecht style’ explores the cultural and social impact of new media and information technologies and the challenges they pose. It exploits and applies these technologies to model different research domains in the humanities. In addition, the Lab focuses on the development, design and support of technical infrastructure for research in the humanities.
