Welcome to the Centre for Digital Humanities Research

The ANU Centre for Digital Humanities Research links researchers and graduate students across the university working with digital technology in a range of disciplines, including anthropology, visual arts, museums and collections, social and environmental history, literary studies and linguistics. The centre supports researchers and students in exploring and exploiting the opportunities offered by digital research in the Humanities, and aims to critically engage with the use of digital technology to develop new research methods that will advance Humanities research into the future. A range of Masters subjects – in digital humanities, digital media methods and visual anthropology – are taught in the centre, and we provide training in and access to digital media resources for graduate students across the Research School of the Humanities and Arts.

The centre provides particular expertise in curating, researching and publishing digital collections, in metadata standards and repositories, and in long-term storage and preservation of research data, especially through our creation and management of OCCAMS, the Online Cultural Collections and Management System. Through OCCAMS, the centre is also a conduit to a number of ANU facilities and repositories, as well as national and international eResearch programs, including ANDS (the Australian National Data Service); NeCTAR (National eResearch Collaboration and Tools) and its funded Virtual Laboratory HuNI (Humanities Networked Infrastructure); and Project Bamboo, an international collaboration between research universities for building applications and shared infrastructure for humanities research.

The Centre for Digital Humanities Research is pleased to announce the Digital Humanities specialisation as part of the new Masters of Digital Humanities and Public Culture offered by the ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences (CASS). More information can be found on the CDHR Coursework page.

 

The Centre for Digital Humanities Research is very pleased to announce a new Major in Digital Humanities as part of the Bachelor of Arts program in the College of Arts and Social Sciences (CASS) for 2016 and beyond. More information can be found on the CDHR Coursework page.

 

The ANU's Centre for Digital Humanities Research is proud to announce Australia's first undergraduate minor in Digital Humanities as part of the Bachelor of Arts program.
