The Digital Humanities use digital methods to research questions in the humanities. Unlike the traditional humanities our priority is methodology. We focus on the evaluation and development of computerbased procedures.

Increase your digital competences! Study at the Institute for Digital Humanities and profit by the excellent conditions for studying and research in Göttingen!

Some impressions of the opening celebration of the Institute held on the 04.02.2019 at the Paulinerkirche you can find here. Until the move you can find the Department “Text and Language” at the Heynehaus, Papendiek 16 and the Department “Image and Object” at the Heinrich-Düker-Weg 12.
