Computational Humanities Lab @ Duke Kunshan University
As the massive databases of materials in the humanities and social sciences become available – ranging from digitized texts (books, newspapers, correspondence, etc.) and visual arts to transactional data generated daily by users on the social media – scholars are increasingly challenged to think in the scale of “big data”.
What new questions and research avenues can be sparked by the large scale data with the help of computational power? How can we design computationally-based research methods that really useful to humanities research?
In our lab, we are hoping to contribute towards bridging scientific computations and humanities research and realizing imaginations of potential research orientations for students from both STEM and humanities/social sciences areas.

We are bringing together researchers from various scholarly fields and incubate interdisciplinary research involving students in multiple disciplines.
