The Centre for Social and Cultural Data Sciences (CSCDS or “cascades” for short) is a multi-disciplinary community of scholars with a shared interest in developing advanced quantitative and computational methods, and applying them to research in the humanities and social sciences. We can achieve these aims best collaboratively, working as a single, cohesive community. As a result, our community consists of both researchers in the social and cultural sciences who seek to apply new techniques in their inquiries and those from quantitative disciplines with interests in discovering new applications, motivations, and contexts for their work.
