The GhentCDH

The Ghent Centre for Digital Humanities (GhentCDH) engages in the field of ‘Digital Humanities’ at Ghent University, ranging from archaeology and geography to linguistics and cultural studies. It develops DH collaboration and supports research projects, teaching activities and infrastructure projects across the faculties.

  • DH Support

    The Ghent CDH offers advice and guidance throughout the research project lifecycle where digital tools, methods or collections are used. For the research data management and training we work closely with the Library Lab of the Faculty of Arts and Philosophy Library. 

  • Geospatial analysis

    The Ghent CDH offers advice, support and training regarding geospatial data management, analysis and visualisation to the humanities and social sciences researchers at the Ghent University.

  • Digital text analysis

    The GhentCDH aims to improve digital text analysis at Ghent University by offering support and information to researchers. You can contact us for advice on TEI and digital editions, working with digital text analysis tools, and using computer-assisted qualitative data analysis.

  • Collaborative databases

    The GhentCDH offers advice and support for collaborative databases at Ghent University. It helps researchers to develop a database instance, powered by e.g. Nodegoat. It provides advice regarding data standards and linked data.


Humanities 20.0, 17 October 2017

Humanities 20.0

Humanities have been at the heart of education and research for over 2,000 years. Whether it is grammar, rhetoric, dialectics, philosophy, or history: since ancient times, these have all been inextricably linked with knowledge, science, and education in the Western world. This was also the reason why the Faculty of Arts and Philosophy was one of the first priorities when founding Ghent University, 200 years ago.
