These web pages are the main platform for the Digital.Humanities@Oxford initiative, a joint initiative by the Oxford e-Research Centre, IT Services, the Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH), and Oxford's Bodleian Libraries.
This section contains information about the site, the Digital.Humanities@Oxford initiative, other humanities projects hosted at the Oxford e-Research Centre, and the JISC-funded work on the Virtual Research Environment from which the site has developed.
Oxford probably has more digital humanities activity than any other UK institution, as is abundantly illustrated in the People and Projects section of this site. The University has received more grants than any other university from the Arts and Humanities Research Council for projects with digital research outputs.
Since the 1970s Oxford University has played a major national and international role in the development and use of digital tools and resources for research in the humanities. Read further information about the history of Oxford digital humanities.
