Welcome to the Digital Humanities Network
Digital Humanities is transforming the practice of arts-based or arts-linked research, and the University of Glasgow has one of the strongest and longest-established communities of scholars in this area. Our Digital Humanities network, supported by ArtsLab, offers a forum for sharing expertise and building connections both within and beyond the University's College of Arts.

The Scottish language is being lost every day, and in a short time will become quite unintelligible. [...] To me, who have the true patriotic soul of an old Scotsman, that would seem a pity.
(Boswell in Holland, p. 161)
Launched in March 2011, following the rediscovery of Boswell’s draft dictionary materials, this project will be providing initial transcriptions of the manuscript, as well as information on its provenance, and commentary on the Scots words and phrases it contains. It will also give an overview of Boswell’s plan for his dictionary, as outlined in his letters and journals with the eventual aim to produce a complete edition of Boswell’s dictionary.
