About

Digital Humanities Research at King's College London is a pioneer in its field, and we aim to provide outstanding supervision and training in a broad range of areas across digital humanities and digital culture, exploring the varied ways in which digital information, technologies and methods are transforming the humanities, arts, culture and society.

Overview

At Digital Humanities Research at King's College London, you will be supervised by leading figures in your field, and participate in a lively and supportive research culture within the Department, which currently has 14 academic staff and 26 MPhil/PhD students (not including students on collaborative programmes whose primary supervisor is located elsewhere in the College), as well as post-docs and visiting researchers.

Key facts:

The Department has an active MPhil/PhD seminar series and an annual MPhil/PhD student conference organised by the students themselves, and there are a range of seminars and other events both within King’s and at academic and cultural institutions around London. London also possesses extensive media and digital industries, with many opportunities for internships and employment.

Programme Structure

  • All PhD candidates are allocated two supervisors, and are expected to meet with their primary supervisor on a regular basis, with progress reports submitted every six months. Students will normally be upgraded from MPhil to PhD status after 9-18 months, with a transfer to 'writing up' status usually occurring after three years of full-time study. Upon submission of the thesis, assessment is by means of an oral examination (viva).
  • Our postgraduate students are an integral part of the academic life of the Department. We are a growing department with many internationally recognised researchers and visiting academics. We have a wide range of both national and international projects, collaborations with other departments, as well as with other higher education institutions, cultural and memory organisations, and digital industries. Our students have access to good library facilities, and there is a research student room within the department.
