Biography

Claire Warwick is a Professor of Digital Humanities in the Department of English at Durham University, having been Pro-Vice-Chancellor: Research 2014- 2019. Before coming to Durham she was Head of UCL Department of Information Studies, and director of the UCL Centre for Digital Humanities, and began her academic career as a lecturer at Sheffield University’s iSchool. Her PhD, from Cambridge, was in English Literature, followed by a postdoctoral position at Oxford University’s Humanities Computing Unit and Faculty of English.

Her research is concerned with the way that digital resources are used in the humanities and cultural heritage and in reading behaviour in physical and digital spaces. She is also currently completing a monograph on the history of cyberspace, entitled "A World Elsewhere". She has led and co-investigated several digital humanities research projects, for example the INKE project and the QRator project. She collaborates widely, especially with researchers in Canada and the USA and has served on various advisory boards in digital humanities, for example Digital Manuscripts to Europeana (DM2E), and was a member of the Comite Scientifique du Campus Condorcet. She also chaired the international programme committee for the DH2009 conference and gave the closing plenary lecture for DH2016.
