centre: Digital Humanities at Lancaster University

About the centre:

Digital Humanities at Lancaster University has been led by Ian Gregory since 2006. Main research interests are:

  1. The use of GIS technology to study long-term change in the societies of Britain and Ireland in particular through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
  2. Developing an understanding of what GIS has to offer to historical research more generally and developing Historical GIS as an established field within history.
  3. Using computing technology across the humanities and social sciences to gain a better understanding of the past.
