The digital humanities form a bridge between the traditional practices of research and the opportunities afforded by technology, providing scholars with new ways of looking at old problems, and the methods, tools and frameworks to support them in novel avenues of enquiry.

The Department of Digital Humanities (DDH) is currently involved in over forty research projects , spanning subject disciplines which include (and frequently cross boundaries between) ancient, medieval and early modern history; classics; literary studies; linguistics; drama and performance; religious studies; art history; architecture; music and musicology. The department has collaborative relationships across King’s College London and with a large number of institutions and bodies in the UK and internationally. Funding comes from a range or sources, including the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), the Leverhulme Trust and the Andrew W Mellon Foundation: DDH has generated over £17 million in research grants over the past 7 years.
