Digital Humanities is an expanding multidisciplinary field at the intersection of digital technologies and humanities. At Leicester, innovative work in this area is undertaken by staff across the College of Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities and College of Science and Engineering. Support is provided by IT Services and the University Library.
