Research Humanities and Digital Sciences
Research at the Tilburg School of Humanities and Digital Sciences focuses on transformation processes taking place in contemporary society, related to communication and culture, and analyses the underlying moral and ethical questions.
The TSHD Graduate School offers an attractive environment, conducive to intensive contacts between junior and senior researchers, to prepare our next generation of researchers to become skilled and responsible academics.
Research areas & themes
The core of the TSHD research is centered around the fields of culture, communication, cognition/AI and philosophy, in line with the respective Departments. Although most researchers are established in one department, we encourage our staff to collaborate beyond the boundaries of the departments. Multiple TSHD researchers cooperate on topical themes such as robotics, virtual reality, digitization, online culture and communication, and health communication. This way, our researchers are enabled to tackle contemporary challenges in synergetic, interdisciplinary efforts.
We aim to inspire our researchers in transgressing the borders of their disciplines with several initiatives. In the regular TSHD lunch colloquia two colleagues from different departments address a single topic from their perspective. The annual Research Traineeships (RTS) program is set up to stimulate interdisciplinary research. In this program, members from two different departments can apply for funding to hire two research assistants (advanced students) for joint research projects that focus on a common theme.
