Digital Humanities at Kent

Featured story

The Digital Humanities at Kent represents a diverse set of research interests across the Humanities and in other faculties.

Academic leads

At Kent we have two academic leads, who bring differing but complementary strengths to the area.

  • Professor Catherine Richardson, whose research is in the relationship between texts and the material circumstances of their production and consumption. She was an investigator in the DocExplore Project, which looked at how technology could enable access  and analysis of historical manuscripts.
  • Dr Christina Kim, who trained in brain and cognitive sciences and linguistics, and has used Visual World eye-tracking technology in her work. She now looks at how language interpretation and use is situated in context, and is the Director of the Linguistics Lab at Kent.
