Digital Turn in the Czech Humanities and Social Sciences
The publication is documenting the innovations that the Computational turn has brought to the work of Czech social science and humanities scholars. It is the first publication to map interesting projects, research and practice in this field in the Czech environment.
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.

Nástroje pro vizualizaci dat
Data visualization is a fairly broad topic that involves the creation and study of visual representations. Researchers today can choose from a wide range of specialised and complex tools that allow data to be represented in different ways. Let's take a look at some of them.
What do MUNI ARTS researchers do?
The humanities alone are a mix of disciplines ranging from history or philosophy through philological sciences to sciences dealing with art and culture. The form of digital processing of research questions is equally varied, be it the use of 3D technologies in archaeology, text analysis in literary sciences, mapping and GIS in history research, or creating digital editions in classical studies.
Arne Novák´s Digital Library
The aim of the project is to make the extensive work of Arno Novák available in one place. The collection includes digitised materials from the Central Library's collection, such as monographs, introductions and afterwords, for which the copyright law allows free access.
