Digital technologies are increasingly being incorporated into humanities research.

For example, via the algorithms used by search engines and text and data analytics, and by the infrastructures supporting the exchange of data.

  • What does this mean for the ways in which humanities scholars conduct their research?
  • Are digital techniques merely tools to help us to find, analyse, model and represent text, data and images?
  • Or do they play a role in structuring or even determining what information we find, how we process it and how we present it to different audiences?
