The Moore Institute has a major commitment to Digital Humanities. DH brings together expertise and methodologies from humanities scholars with new digital technologies – ranging from online digital archives of historical and cultural material, to the application of computational tools (e.g. data-mining), the creation of “born-digital” creative works, and broader investigations of the impact of digital technology on society. DH thrives on collaboration between researchers in the humanities, information technology, libraries and archives, media and heritage industries, and creative arts.
The Moore Institute hosts a large variety of digital humanities projects and resources, and offers training and support for students and scholars engaged in digital humanities research. As a key partner in NUI Galway’s new Digital Cultures Initiative, the Institute will further develop interdisciplinary digital humanities teaching and research across the University, and connect research with digital industries and creative and cultural communities.
