The Centre for Data, Culture & Society published their Annual Report for the academic year 2019-2020 on the 27th of May.  Directed by Professor Melissa Terras, the Centre was founded in 2019 in the context of the University’s commitment to the Data Driven Innovation programme and the development of the Edinburgh Futures Institute. It provides a focus for data-driven and digitally-engaged research across the disciplines within the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. As data and digital technology transform our university, our city and our world, CDCS and EFI aim to ensure that the vital contributions that the arts, humanities and social sciences make to this transformation are recognised and celebrated. 

The annual report outlines the Centre’s progress and achievements over the past 12 months and includes details of CDCS activities, training and seminar events, research clusters, and the Centre’s broader community. As Centre’s founder and Director, Professor Melissa Terras, writes in her introduction, the report “is really a testament to what can be built, in a relatively short timeframe, when we all work towards common goals and a shared understanding of how best to support digital research in the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.”
