Our Mission

DHCH supports and promotes the organization of joint doctoral events and the inter-university exchange in Digital Humanities in Switzerland and abroad. Digital Humanities addresses a wide variety of disciplines, like art history, archeology, media-sciences, linguistics, and others. The activities are closely linked to humanities subjects and forms an interface to libraries, archives, and museums. DHCH shall integrate and reflect academic research in arts, social science, and technology to promote the prospects for advanced DH scholars in the vast field of digital research opportunities by connecting researchers and providing access to coordinated courses and the relevant movements in the specific domain. The focus is on the skills of researchers using digital technologies in order to apply digital tools and to bring together specialized scholars and their need for various applications that are very specific for some particular regions in the arts and cultural fields.
