School of Digital Humanities and Liberal Arts

School of Digital Humanities and Liberal Arts (DiHLA)

Digital Humanities is a multidisciplinary field which explores the various dimensions of interplay of digital technologies, societies and communities. It encompasses research in various areas where digital technologies influence, contribute and advance the cause of humanities and explores the intersection of digital technologies and humanities. The field attempts to produce applications and models that make possible new kinds of research, both in the humanitarian disciplines as well as in computer science and its allied technologies. It also studies the impact of these technologies on cultural heritage, libraries, archives, digital culture, lifestyles,technology empowered communities, and deployment of mathematical and predictive models on the future of a digitally empowered society.

The School of Digital Humanities and Liberal Arts (DiHLA) at KUDSIT will focus on research related to digital culture and society and will explore the use of advanced technology-related methods in humanities research. In current times, cultural artefacts are increasingly available in digitised or born-digital form and computing power, which has grown exponentially over the last several decades, is more accessible than ever. T​ he activities at the Centre would focus on the exploration and use of digital tools, analytical techniques and technology to explore humanistic questions and solving business related issues. The DiHLA will have its own academic and research programs in areas such as in Digital Law, Digital Pedagogy, Computational Social Science, e-Governance, management science, entrepreneurship, innovation, etc. The school will also collaborate with other schools of KUDSIT for supporting interdisciplinary programs of KUDSIT that have a humanities/social science component.

Objectives

  • To cater to the demand of trained human resoTo promote and influence the informed and critical uses of digital technology and computational approaches in social sciences, art, literature, history, area studies, linguistics, media, management and other disciplines of the humanities.
  • To promote multidisciplinary domains of research in the social sciences that connect sociology, humanities, law economics, management, governance, policy, education and related disciplines with technical innovations in mathematics, statistics, and computer science.
  • To bring together students and faculty from within various centres of KUDSIT as well as researchers and community members to explore the crossroads of the humanities and computing.To encourage and motivate student community to take up the future challenges of the growing IT industry
  • To enable researchers and students to adapt computational and computer-aided methods to access, analyze, sequence, and present social and cultural artefacts in innovative ways.
  • To engage with wider community of researchers, academics and practitioners for initiating, developing and sharing ideas to address and influence various emerging digital policy challenges
  • To generate new and relevant knowledge through original research, and intervening through direct engagement with the civil society and communities.

The School will focus on research related to digital culture and society and will explore the use of advanced technology-related methods in humanities and social science research.
