Centre for Computing in the Humanities (CCH)
King's College London
The Centre for Computing in the Humanities (CCH) is in the School of Humanities at King's College London and is an international leader in the application of technology in research in the arts and humanities, and in the social sciences. The primary objective of the CCH is to foster awareness, understanding and skill in the scholarly applications of computing. It operates in three main areas: as a department with responsibility for its own academic programme; as a research centre promoting the appropriate application of computing in humanities research; and as a unit providing collegial support to its sister departments in the School of Humanities. As a research centre, CCH is a member of the Humanities Research Centres, the School's umbrella grouping of its research activities with a specifically inter-disciplinary focus.
CCH has collaborative relationships across King’s College and with a large number of institutions and bodies in the UK and internationally. It has generated over £13 million in research grants over the past 5 years, and is involved in more than 20 major research projects, with funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), JISC, the Leverhulme Trust and the Andrew W Mellon Foundation.
CCH is responsible for the MA in Digital Culture and Technology, and the MA in Digital Humanities, and jointly responsible, along with the Centre for e-Research, for the MA in Digital Asset Management.
Additionally, CCH participates in a number of major activities that have a focus beyond the College. These include:
