The Digital Humanities Center (DHC) was established in 2020 and is located at the University Library of Bochum. As a strong project partner it supports the implementation of DH projects and guarantees the long-term availability and visibility of the project outcomes. The Center encourages the integration of information technology into the humanities and provides relevant research tools. Furthermore, the DHC connects researchers by organizing workshops and conferences such as the DH Day.
Working in an interdisciplinary team of humanities scholars and computer scientists, the DHC Team provides support for the implementation of computer-aided methods and the digital modelling of humanities research. On the technical side, the DHC is supported by the Digital Library at UB Bochum. For further information on what we do, feel free to contact the DHC or reach out to us personally.
If you would like the DHC to support your project, please make sure to read the best practice guidelines for a cooperation with the DHC.
