Humanities Advanced Technology and Information Institute, University of Glasgow
HATII conducts a range of interdisciplinary research in humanities computing.
Our research is conducted in four main areas:
- The relationship between digital and analogue objects
- Digital creation and storage
- User evaluation
- Information retrieval
Through a range of collaborative research projects and individual scholarship these areas are explored from a theoretical and practical perspective by the institute’s academic staff, researchers and PhD students. An active series of research seminars and visiting speakers examine these issues and provide fresh insights. Current grants total more than £2 million and the institute has been successful in attracting funding from the AHRB, JISC and the European Union as well as a range of private foundations.The University of Glasgow has the responsibility for the CASPAR Methodology and models, and also joint leadership of the Training workpackages. In addition, Prof. Ross will play a pivotal role in linking Cultural data centres, and CASPAR’s links to ERPANET and DELOS.
