Research Projects

The University of Amsterdam is involved in many Digital Humanities research projects.


Centre for Digital Humanities

CDH website

The goal of the Centre is to initiate and coordinate short-term research with a private partner, that may lead to larger projects in which expertise from the humanities and industry is brought together. Each project involves a research question from the humanities of which the solution is approached by means of a proof of concept or a concrete product using techniques from Digital Humanities. In addition, the aim is to encourage aspiring humanities researchers to find a place in the Centre.\
