The digitization of archives containing e.g. documents, paintings, or films and the proliferation of cultural data on the web has a dramatic effect on how research in the humanities is conducted. Huge collections of study material are available to humanities researchers. But getting access to the data, processing the data, analyzing the data, and deriving new knowledge from such collections is difficult due to limited availability of dedicated tools. In this theme the DSRC collaborates with

the Center for Creation Content and Technology

the Center for Digital Humanities

Network Institute

The Network Institute at VU University brings together a unique combination of scientists from Computer Science, the Social Sciences, the Humanities, Economics, Law, Philosophy, Mathematics and Theology
