Welcome to the Digital Humanities Lab
The Digital Humanities is an interdisciplinary institution of the University of Basel. Its task is to coordinate and promote research, teaching and infrastructure for digitisation in the humanities and social sciences. It is also a central institution in Switzerland for the theory and practice of the digital humanities and offers a Master's programme and a Doctorate in Digital Humanities. The lab has its roots in scientific photography and it was founded in 1924 as “Abteilung für Wissenschaftliche Photographie”. Besides digital editing, corpus building and virtual research environments, computational photography and imaging are still foci of the group in research and lecture.
