Digital Arts & Humanities
New technologies create new kinds of knowledge, culture and practice. In addition, technologies facilitate our access to and analysis of existing material sources such as written texts, maps and artifacts.
Researchers at Maynooth University have developed information and communications technologies to support the practices of digital arts and humanities research.
We are devising computing techniques for digital libraries and for cultural heritage, digital preservation and curation, as well as conceiving new tools for digital art creation. We combine these skills to enhance our research in the arts and humanities with the goal of using our specialist resources to make source material available for critical discourse and for public access.
