Background of RIDCH
Funded by the RGC's IDS grant in the period of 1 December 2014 - 31 May 2018, the Research Institute for Digital Culture and Humanities (RIDCH) was set up by Professor Kwok-kan Tam (former Dean of the School of Arts and Social Sciences) to address the changes and new possibilities of research in digital culture and digital humanities, and as far as possible to inform teaching in the related areas. On 1 November 2017, Dr. Anna Tso succeeded Prof. Kwok-kan Tam as the Director of RIDCH to complete the IDS project and sustain RIDCH's ongoing research activities beyond the IDS funded period.
