Welcome to the Digital Humanities website!
The use of digital methods in research in humanities has had a long tradition at the Faculty of Arts, Masaryk University. Because the humanities alone are a very diverse mix of disciplines, ranging from history, philosophy, through philological sciences or archaeology, to sciences that deal with art and culture, research in the field of digital humanities has a variety of forms.
On the one hand, we can find projects aimed at making data available to scientists in a digital form, be it digital libraries or factual databases. Such digitized data is a key material for further research in the digital humanities. On the other hand, there are fascinating research projects, often by interdisciplinary teams, where digital methods help researchers answer entirely new questions and grasp the studied topics in a new way.
The aim of this website is to present research activities and interesting projects which Faculty of Arts scholars work on and to inform about educational opportunities, conferences and workshops as well as news and trends in the field of digital humanities.
