Wolfson College Digital Research Cluster
We focus on work across a variety of disciplines in which the web is the platform, and where sharing of ideas and methodologies could bring mutual benefit.
Since the Cluster was launched in 2010 the pace of digital research has accelerated. Many students in the college are using digital technologies in their personal and project research.
It could be argued that all research these days is digital, since we all use computers in our work. The focus of the Digital Research Cluster is on work across a variety of disciplines in which the web is the platform, and where sharing of ideas and methodologies could bring mutual benefit.
Wolfson College is the natural home for this venture: it is graduate, large, strong in sciences and arts, forward-thinking, and has a tradition of fostering cross-disciplinary collaboration. By working together within the Wolfson Digital Research Cluster, we aim to lead the way in this rapidly advancing field, create new research partnerships, and also to attract funding for scholarships, workshops, and summer schools.
The vision of the Digital Research Cluster was unveiled at an inaugural meeting on 8th March. 2010. The Cluster also has a formal agreement for collaboration with the Oxford e-Research Centre.
Cluster Advisory Committee
They are supported by an Advisory Committee consisting of Eric Meyer (Oxford Internet Institute), David Zeitlyn (Social Anthropology), Moritz Riede (Physics), Jacob Dahl (Assyriology), Tarje Nissen-Meyer (Earth Sciences) and Pip Willcox (Bodleian LIbraries Centre for Digital Scholarship).
