The Centre for Digital Humanities & Social Sciences (DigHumSS)

The Centre for Digital Humanities and Social Sciences is led by Dr Zoe Alker.

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.

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:

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.
