Motives and Necessity
DHCH reflects the ongoing digital transition of humanities research and education and societal shifts caused by digitization, as we are in a phase of progress and definition of this field. Digital Humanities addresses a wide variety of disciplines, like art history, archaeology, media-sciences, linguistics, and so forth. The research is closely linked to humanities subjects and forms an interface to museums. DHCH integrates and reflects academic research in the humanities, social sciences and technology. This fosters perspectives for advanced DH scholars in the broad field of digital research opportunities by giving them access to coordinated courses and the relevant national and international networks in the area.
