Lancaster’s Digital Humanities Hub brings together internationally recognised centres of excellence in the spatial humanities, corpus linguistics and natural language processing (NLP), and combines these with broad expertise across the digital humanities as a whole. We draw on expertise from across Lancaster University, particularly from the following departments and centres:

Recent projects have been funded by: the European Research Council, the Andrew M. Mellon Foundation, the Leverhulme Trust, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the Economic and Social Research Council, COST, the US National Endowment for the Humanities, the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Newby Trust. We are strongly involved in collaborative work with non-academic organisations in the local region – which includes the Lake District – as well as with national and international organisations. 

We excited to announce that we are launching our new MA in Digital Humanities in 2019/20. We also have PhD students studying a range of inter-disciplinary topics and are keen to recruit more. We can provide access to an excellent range of digital resources to researchers and students, and we have a very active research community that runs a range of conferences, forums and seminar series. In addition, we offer short courses in a range of topics in Digital Humanities through the Lancaster Summer Schools series.
