About CDHU

The Centre for Digital Humanities at Uppsala University (CDHU) was initiated 1 January 2021, and expands upon the activities of the Forum for Digital Humanities (2015–2017) and the Research network DH Uppsala (2018–2020). CDHU coordinates the digital transformation of Humanities and Social Sciences across Uppsala University. CDHU’s mission is threefold and cover:

  • Research initiation and support (including application support and activities, seminars, and larger events)
  • Skills training and education (workshops, courses and other support from MA level to researchers)
  • Digital infrastructure to technically support research in the humanities and social sciences

The research engineers, coordinators, and staff at the Centre for Digital Humanities work together offering consultation, practical, and technical support for world-class research that integrates digital methods and tools. Our staff can support different stages of the research process—from research design to obtaining data, statistical analysis, data visualization, and more.

The Research Engineers at CDHU have expertise in a variety of technical skills and knowledge sets, such as coding and data science, AI and machine learning, GIS, sustainable research implementation, and natural language processing.
