Welcome to the CIPSH Chair on Digital Humanities in Education
The CIPSH Chair on Digital Humanities in Education is managed by the Centre for English, Translation and Anglo-Portuguese Studies (CETAPS), a research unit at the Faculty of Human and Social Sciences (NOVA FCSH), of the NOVA University of Lisbon, and The Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the University of Porto. The Open University of Portugal is also a leading partner of the Chair.
The CIPSH coordinates the international works and researches carried out by a huge constellation of centres and networks of scholars. It favours the exchange of knowledge among faraway scholars and fosters the international circulation of scholars, in order to improve the communication among specialists from different disciplines, enforce a better knowledge of cultures and of the different social, individual and collective behaviours and bring to the fore the richness of each culture and their fruitful diversity.
The International Council for Philosophy and Humanistic Studies was founded on the 18th of January, 1949, in Brussels, at the request of UNESCO and under its auspices, following a meeting organized by the Union Académique Internationale to bring together representatives of nongovernmental organizations. From January 1, 2011, it adopted the designation “International Council for Philosophy and Human Sciences”.
