The implications of technology on contemporary society and culture are core to the research of the Department.
The digital humanities form a bridge between the traditional practices of research and the opportunities afforded by technology. We currently have more than 40 active research staff and a large cohort of PGR students within the King's Department of Digital Humanities exploring this fascinating space critically and thoughtfully.
The digital humanities research community includes many visiting researchers, and we organise visiting speaker seminars throughout term-time - in addition to workshops, reading groups and symposia.
The Department's research activities are structured around the study of five themes:
During the most recent Research Excellence Framework the Department of Digital Humanities submitted together with the King's Department of Culture, Media & Creative Industries. 80% of our research was deemed to be either world-leading (4*) or internationally excellent (3*), and our research impact received 90% at 4* - gaining King's College London a research power ranking of 1st in the UK for our sector.
