Cultural Informatics Research and Enterprise Group

Organization profile

Profile Information

Cultural Informatics logoSitting between the humanities and computing disciplines, the Cultural Informatics Research and Enterprise Group is therefore both complex and multi-faceted. Within this space, and drawing on multiple epistemic traditions, the Cultural Informatics REG aims to stimulate visionary and transformative thinking, and to act as a driver for innovation, reconfiguration and exploration based on the broad and intersectional reach of cultural informatics.

We create opportunities for new interdisciplinary models and methods of collaboration. We are an open and inclusive research grouping committed to engaging with major contemporary research challenges and leading scholars from a variety of traditional disciplines. We aim to become a place where the digital, analogue and hybrid humanities can be discussed, negotiated and projected.

We recognise and embrace the notion that universities are not the sole producers, stewards, and disseminators of knowledge or culture. We therefore aim to play a significant role shaping natively digital models of scholarly discourse for the newly emergent public spheres of the present era (the www digital archives, the Internet of Things, the blogosphere, etc.) to model excellence and innovation in these domains. We further aim to facilitate the formation of networks of knowledge production, exchange, and dissemination that are, at once, global and local.  

Cultural Informatics provides a collaborative and inter-disciplinary university-wide community. We aim to serve as a laboratory, innovation agency, portal and as a respectful meeting place (or trading zone) for the humanities, technology and culture, extending across research, education and innovation.  

We promote the co-development of knowledge to support new research methods in the Arts and Humanities with tools based on generating new knowledge in Computing Science and related fields. The group is committed to ensuring that the technological innovations it advocates are practical for cultural institutions to deploy in practical working environments. Research in the “business of cultural heritage” has required novel methods and reinforces the impact agenda. CI therefore pushes the boundaries of knowledge in a research environment where the impact agenda is embedded by design in all projects.
