Core Research Groups

CESTA's core research groups investigate texts, places, social networks, historical trends, and more.

Encompassing the most significant subfields of digital humanities — including text mining, geospatial imaging, digital pedagogy, social network analysis, and media archaeology — CESTA's central labs provide the stable nucleus for the Center's research endeavors.

Each of the core research groups is home to multiple smaller projects. These projects, which may last anywhere from a few months to several years, result in print or digital publications, new tools or databases, course offerings, and more ...
