Humanities in Practice: Sources Resources & Discourses

Human creativity, communication and invention provide a powerful record of human culture and society. By enabling and carrying out research on our rich heritage, we can build an understanding of past human cultures and the forces that shaped their development.

At Maynooth University, our humanities research is particularly involved in harnessing information technologies to facilitate new insights into human legacies and cultures.

We explore the source material of our social, spatial and cultural landscape, we develop the resources to make those materials available to scholars and policy makers around the globe and we interrogate such material in critical ways to enrich our understanding of ancient, contemporary and emerging materials.
