Center for Digital Humanities is up and running

The Faculty of Humanities has recently founded a Center for Digital Humanities (place: Vendelstraat 8). The goal of the Center is to initiate and coordinate research projects with a private partner 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 and computational linguistics. In addition, the aim is to encourage aspiring humanities researchers to find a place in the Center. The Center is led by Prof. dr. Rens Bod and coordinated by Dr. Patricia Alkhoven.

In May 2012, five projects have been selected by the UvA with private investments from Webmapper, Spinque, Elsevier, ElephantCandy and VicarVision. The Center has recently joined forces with the VU and the KNAW, and in September 2012, a total of thirteen projects will start, An additional round is intended to take place in autumn.
