About Digital Humanities Research Seminar

Open to all who feel that they want to be part of DH Research community at the University of Helsinki (the fact that this is organised at the Faculty of Arts does not by any means imply that it is only for people at the Faculty of Arts!).

Meant as a hub or a forum where one can meet other people interested in this subject matter.

How to get involved? First thing is to write an email to to be included in the mailing list of the seminar. Or, just show up at the seminar.

The Fall 2015 programme has been fixed, but the Spring 2016 programme will be formed based on the interest of the seminar group.

It is possible and desirable that also activities other than “classic seminar papers” will take place in the future.

Updates to the Fall programme will be amended to this blog post.
