What is DAH?

The ever-evolving developments in computing and their performative and
analytical implications have brought about a quantum leap in arts and
humanities research and practice. Digital Arts and Humanities is a field of
study, research, teaching, and invention at the intersection of computing
and information management with the arts and humanities.

The DAH Structured PhD programme has developed a research platform,
structures, partnerships and innovation models by which fourth-level
researchers can engage with a wide range of stakeholders in order to
contribute to the developing digital arts and humanities community
world-wide, as participants and as leaders.  Currently the program includes
a vibrant community of 60 researchers throughout Ireland.

Programme Structure

Candidates will complete core, training and career development modules,
including events in sister universities across Ireland. The overall aims of
the taught modules are threefold: 1) to introduce students to the history
and theoretical issues in digital arts/humanities; 2) to provide the skills
needed to apply advanced computational and information management paradigms
to humanities/arts research; 3) to provide an enabling framework for
students to develop generic and transferable skills to carry out their
final research projects/dissertations.

Year 1 of the four-year programme includes core and optional graduate
education modules. These modules provide a grounding in essential research
skills and transferable skills together with access to specialist topics.
In years 2 and 3 work on PhD research projects is supplemented with access
to elective modules. Year 3 features practical placements in industry,
academic research environments or cultural institutions.

University College Cork has a strong track record in Digital Humanities and
has been a pioneer in the development of digital tools for language study
and historiography. The College is strong in all disciplines of the
Humanities, with a particular concentration on Irish and European studies.
The Digital Arts and Humanities program currently has 46 students from
around the globe, studying topics ranging from Renaissance networking to
eighteenth-century country houses, from modern performance art to Irish
diaspora music performers in the USA and their stories.
