Digital Humanities​​


​​We partner historical and literacy expertise with computer science as we aim to build the largest online, open access and machine readable corpus of Arabic and Persian texts; develop methods and too​ls to study them, create data analytics and visualisations, and build an online application that fosters public research and debate. Research questions currently relate to the history of the Arabic book, including meanings of authorship, the recycling of older tests into new forms, and how narratives were adapted to new circumstances. ​
