The Centre for Digital Humanities & Social Sciences (DigHumSS)
The University of Liverpool’s Centre for Digital Humanities and Social Sciences seeks to bring together and support multidisciplinary researchers from across the Faculty to explore not just the development and deployment of digital technologies and tools, but also their uses, applications, and social impacts.
The Centre is a team of interdisciplinary researchers from computer and data science, engineering, heritage, sociology, communications and critical linguistics, geography, and information studies. Many of the colleagues working within the Centre also contribute the University's institutional Digital Research theme.
From AR to consumerism, finance to automation, the Centre’s aim is to take in the full spectrum of digital effects and is based around the following sub-themes:
- Heritage and Digital Technologies. Led by Dr Nick Webb
- AI / Digital. Led by Dr Phillip Brooker
- Big Data and Digital Inclusion. Led by Dr Elena Musi and Dr Elinor Carmi
- Critical Digital Culture/s. Led by Dr Andrew Kirton
- Machine Learning and Engineering. Led by Dr Peter Green
- Digital Health and Critical Medical Humanities; Science, Technology and Society. Led by Dr Ciara Kierans
As digital technologies continue to have ever-increasing impacts on how we live and work, the Centre for Digital Humanities will seek to use digital tools to further both academic research and to chronicle how they shape our world.
Digital Humanities & Social Sciences Research Network
The Digital Humanities & Social Sciences Research Network brings together multidisciplinary researchers from across the University that are interested in digital tools and technologies and their uses, applications and social impacts. The network is open to all research colleagues and is especially keen to welcome our Early Career Researchers and Postgraduate Students from across the University.
