Digital humanities

Projects for a field of multifold experimentation

The digital humanities are a field of research, teaching and engineering at the crossroads of computer science and the arts, letters and human and social sciences.

They are characterized by methods and practices related to the use and development of digital tools in the humanities and social sciences, online and offline, as well as by the desire to take into account new digital content and media, at the same title as more traditional objects of study.

New Uses of digital and Continuity!

These challenges gave birth to the NUNC! project, which aims to assess the realities of the appropriation of digital techniques for distance education.
