Cambridge Digital Humanities Courses

Cambridge Digital Humanities (CDH) rethinks what humanities can be in an age of pervasive computation. CDH makes use of innovative tools and methods for investigating both traditional and new forms of data and media, in addition to pursuing opportunities to interrogate and reflect on the knowledge and insight that 'the digital' affords.

The Learning Programme helps academic researchers develop skills to critically investigate, develop, exploit and expand new ways of doing humanities and social science research using digital technologies.
