There is a strong history of Digital Humanities at the University of Canterbury, going back to the days of punch cards and mainframes, which Geoffrey Rice from the History department used to analyse the 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic. More recently, Denis Dutton produced Arts and Letters Daily, Chris Jones created a digital archive of the Canterbury Roll manuscript, and Jack Copeland founded the Turing Archive for the History of Computing. This tradition continues in the development of the CEISMIC Canterbury Earthquakes Digital Archive and other projects of the UC Arts Digital Lab.
