Digital Humanities

Contact: Camille Roth

The “Digital Humanities” team gathers an interdisciplinary group of researchers at Centre Marc Bloch at the interface between social sciences and computational sciences — its members are either social scientists who are acquainted with formal and ICT methods, or computer scientists or modelers who have been working in social science fields.

One of the main current interests of the team lies in the study of socio-semantic dynamics in various communities, notably those of the digital public space, by relying on methods borrowing both to ICT sociology, social network analysis, public sphere studies, on one side, and to system modeling, textual corpora analysis and NLP, and AI methods, on the other side.

This website presents the activities and output of the team.

The team organizes on a regular basis a series of internal meetings on qual-quant approaches.  The sessions aim at presenting the recently finished or ongoing work of the team as well as proposing methodological workshops conceived as a training to digital methods (fabrication and curation of databases, text processing, etc.). We thereby enter into a fruitful dialog prone to initiative new qual-quant research questions at the Centre.
