Sussex Digital Humanities Lab

SHL is an interdisciplinary research programme that investigates the interactions between computational technology, culture, society and environment.

Welcome to SHL

The Sussex Humanities Lab is one of the University's Centres of Excellence. It is concerned with the eco-socio-cultural potentials and impacts of an increasingly digital world.

Commonly known as ‘The Lab’, SHL is an open, flexible and agile entity, a place for play, a space for experimentation and a hybrid base for focused research.

In this short video SHL researchers are challenged to summarise the lab in one sentence.
