Led by Professor Simeon Yates, Director of the Centre for Digital Humanities and Social Science at the University of Liverpool, the project team consists of a core team of academics from eight UK universities; and a broader international steering group that represents 18 universities and organisations from across the UK, France, the USA and Singapore, as well as three “generations” of international research experience in the area of digital media and society.
