Welcome

A very warm welcome to the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College London. Our department has been at the forefront of exploring digital culture and society since the 1990s and is one of the worldwide pioneers in this field. It is one of the many highly interdisciplinary departments that distinguish the research and education at King’s. Studying and researching with us means that you can get a rounded experience of all aspects of the digital; there will always be a focus on both new and traditional approaches in humanities and social science research that have become essential to the understanding of digital culture and society.

On this blog you will find information about our ongoing research projects, updates about our regular public events and also posts written by current staff and students in the department.
