Digital Humanities

“Understanding our past through the cutting-edge digital technology and research is the key to our ability to understand the present and the future.”

The goal of digital humanities is to gather, refine, maintain, and share cultural resources that can subsequently be used and developed by scholars and members of the community. Digitization is used for creating new access paths to cultural information, where current and future generations have the ability to access, learn, understand, and develop cultural resources using the digital technology such as the Internet and mobile technology.

Our research is undertaken in partnerships with other universities in Indonesia and abroad, in collaboration with other stakeholders (government and non-government agencies and local communities).

Our research focuses on cultural heritage artefacts and practices that are poorly documented, largely tacit and fragmented, in which making the preservation difficult and yet crucial. Our project uses an appropriate digital method and tool for preserving, searching, storing and sharing cultural heritage knowledge.
