Some background information about these posts:

The Department of Digital Humanities (DDH) is one of the largest and most prestigious DH Departments in the UK and internationally. DDH has expanded a great deal in the last fifteen years, and during this time “the digital”, both in and as related to the humanities, has changed beyond all recognition. As well as revolutionising 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, and the progress of AI. Our philosophy is that none of these ways in which “the digital” relates 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.

These new posts will consolidate our research and teaching in key areas of DH including computational humanities, global digital politics, digital economy and industries, and digital media and culture, as well as engaging with emergent areas, such as AI and creativity. Some of the posts will also develop and support our new online PGT programmes, including an MSc in Digital Economy and an MA in Digital Futures, both of which are expected to recruit globally, but with a particular focus on South-East Asia . These appointments will also enable us to expand and improve the activities that make the DH student experience at King’s unique, and help students to enhance their skills, such as our Writing and Coding Labs. These posts provide an opportunity for qualified individuals to play a major role in shaping our vision of a diverse and innovative Department of Digital Humanities.
