Digital Humanities Laboratory

A mosaic of visuals originating from various research projects at the DHLAB.

The Digital Humanities Laboratory was founded by Professor Frédéric Kaplan in 2012. The lab develops new computational approaches to manage large digital cultural objects (such as large corpora of texts, images, and complex documents), and to execute high-resolution digitization of artifacts, buildings, and cities. It also aims to develop new understandings of digital cultures, such as visual languages, video culture, and linguistic mediations.
