Data & Digital
CAHSS has been at the forefront of innovative methods in digital humanities and social data science. Recognising the transformative effects of big data, data analytics and digitisation across all areas of life, this is an area of major investment by the University and College, including through the development of EFI and the Centre for Data, Culture and Society, in the broader context of the Edinburgh and South East City Deal. We have already seen impressive success in funding, including in the areas of administrative data, fintech and creative informatics. The ubiquity of digital and data-driven research means that these approaches also contribute significantly to all of the other themes.
