Research support

We want to get in touch with researchers, teachers and students interested in issues related to humanities and digital culture in all its aspects and applications. You do not need to have a finished or clear idea or knowledge of how to design a project, nor do you need to have any knowledge of digital techniques, methods or perspectives. So don't hesitate to contact us if you are interested in possible collaborations or have questions about digital humanities.

Research infrastructure

A central part of our mission is to support researchers, teachers and students at the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Gothenburg, who are in need of information and support regarding digital methods, data materials and software. As part of our research support, CDH continuously develops various tools for digital analysis and making research available at the University of Gothenburg. Feel free to contact us if you need help within the framework of your ongoing research or if you have an idea for a future project.

The Resource portal is the gateway to our ongoing research projects and resources. In the near future, there will also be an open access repository with standalone datasets from a number of our research projects.
