We are delighted to be announcing ten new permanent academic positions in the Department of Digital Humanities. As many in the community know, DDH has expanded a great deal in the last fifteen years. In this time “the digital”, both in and as related to the humanities, has changed beyond all recognition. As well as revolutionizing the way in which we deal with data, computation and analysis in the humanities, we have seen the rise of the interactive World Wide Web, of social media, the digital economy, and key contemporary issues such as fake news and misinformation. Our philosophy is that none of these ways that “the digital” relate to the “the human” can be researched or taught in isolation; and this has underpinned our expansion. We therefore encourage applications for these posts from across the DH broadly defined. 

This ground-breaking investment both consolidates our research and teaching in key areas of DH including computational humanities, digital content management and digital culture and society; and engages with emergent areas, including AI and society, and race and gender in DH. These appointments will also enable us to expand and improve some of the activities that make the DH student experience at King’s unique, such as our Writing Lab and Coding Lab.

Half of these new roles are offered on the College’s Academic Education Pathway (AEP). For these roles in particular we are looking for colleagues who wish to use their skills, experience and passion in developing and leading our teaching programmes. This includes both our “traditional” undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, and also a new suite of courses we are developing on Continuing Professional Education (CPD) and professional and executive education.

Please feel free to contact the Head of Department, Professor Stuart Dunn (stuart [dot] dunn [at] kcl.ac.uk) for an informal discussion.
