Mary Jacobus (Acting Director 2009-10: Andrew Webber)
CRASSH was founded in 2001, with the aim of creating a new focus for disciplinary innovation and, in particular, interdisciplinary dialogues across the full spectrum of the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. In 2011, the Centre will move into a purpose-built new building on the University's main Humanities site. We support the work of scholars at all career levels, from graduate researchers onwards, and encourage interaction across those levels. CRASSH is now known nationally and internationally as a centre of excellence for such work.
CRASSH supports a digital user network, coordinated by a steering group. It hosts regular conference and workshop events in the broad area of digital humanities. It liaises actively with digital service providers in Cambridge (principally CARET and the University Library) and is a member of a number of national and international consortia and networks in e-humanities.
