About us

The Department of Digital Humanities (IDH) was founded on 19 July 2017 by the Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the University of Cologne and is an amalgamation of the Chairs of HKI and Linguistic Information Processing with a Junior Professorship for Digital Humanities.

The Digital Humanites are broadly represented at the University of Cologne. The IDH works closely with the other DH institutions of the University, the Cologne Center for eHumanities, the Data Center for the Humanities and Archaeoinformatics.
