On the recommendation of the Faculty Board, the Board of the University of Groningen has appointed CDH Director Susan Aasman as Full Professor of Digital Humanities at the Faculty of Arts.
The appointment is made in the context of the Aletta Jacobs Incentive Fund, which has created fifteen new chairs across the UG to promote female academic talent to full professorships. With this new chair in Digital Humanities the Faculty Board is explicitly committing itself to the strategic objectives of both the Faculty and the UG for the period 2021-2026, as also expressed in the UG-wide school Digital Society & Technology.
Susan Aasman believes it is crucial for researchers and students to learn to engage with both digitized and born-digital data and explore and acquire digital research skills. The coming years, the main goal will be to stimulate the ongoing digital turn within the Humanities as it will open new pathways to address various important societal issues that are currently at stake.
