About

Our mission is to support, facilitate, promote and inspire data-led and applied digital research across the arts, humanities and social sciences.

 

The Edinburgh Centre for Data, Culture & Society (CDCS), founded in 2019, is an initiative of the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Edinburgh. Directed by Professor Melissa Terras, it is a component of the Edinburgh Futures Institute and was founded in the wider context of CAHSS’s commitment to the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal. As data and digital technology transform our university, our city and our world, CDCS and EFI aim to ensure that the vital contributions that the arts, humanities and social sciences make to this transformation are recognised and celebrated.

CDCS has a core team of Leads from different Schools across CAHSS. The Centre also operates a Stakeholders Forum, which meets biannually and is open to all interested parties. Our work is overseen by a Steering Group and meeting papers are available on the CDCS governance sharepoint site (University of Edinburgh login required). Our Annual Reports are available as both pdfs and Word files (on request).
