Course Description

Digital Humanities and Culture (M.Phil./P.Grad.Dip.)



The MPhil and the Centre for Digital Humanities
Students on the Masters in Digital Humanities and Culture are encouraged to participate in the activities, projects and network of the Trinity Centre for Digital Humanities (https://dh.tcd.ie). Trinity is internationally recognised for its research in this field, and maintains a lively team of DH researchers, projects, partners and visitors. The Trinity Centre for Digital Humanities acts as a conduit between researchers at Trinity and the nationally recognised, ADAPT, the Science Foundation Ireland Research Centre for Digital Media Technology (www.adaptcentre.ie), the DARIAH ERIC European Research Infrastructure for Arts and Humanities (www.dariah.eu), and as a wide network of international research partners based in world class institutions such as the Humboldt University (Berlin), the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (Paris) and the Digital Archiving and Networking Service of the Netherlands (the Hague).

MPhil, Diploma and Certificate Options
The programme can be accessed via three different entry routes, each of which offers its own advantages. With the Postgraduate Certificate, students complete three required courses to develop a basic understanding of and fluency with the methods and contexts of the digital humanities. With the Postgraduate Diploma, students complete 6 courses (4 required, 2 elective) to obtain a thorough grounding in both the theory and the practice underpinning the digital humanities. Finally, with the Masters of Philosophy, students will have the opportunity to apply what they have learned in their coursework through the development of a research dissertation.

Two of these take a theoretical approach, focussing during the Michaelmas term on the Theory and Practice of Digital Humanities and in Hilary term on Cultural- Technical Systems.
