Director’s Message

Takami Matsuda
Director, Research Institute for Digital Media and Content, Keio University
Professor in the Faculty of Letters, who specializes in medieval English literature and the history of the book and visual representation. He has been involved in a series of digital humanities projects at Keio University.

In the past decade, the integration of analogue and digital methodology has been widely adopted in the research and exhibition of cultural heritage. It appears however that the true interaction between the two is yet to be achieved. DMC pursues, through mutually related, individual projects, the creation of the digital environment that can reinterpret cultural resources and find new significance in them while it also fosters the opportunity to look at (and sometimes touch) valuable cultural artifacts accumulated by Keio University.
