Upcoming Events
Connecting in a Digital Age

Throughout the year we host scholars, artists, and practitioners from across the country, region, and campus. Speakers working at the cutting edge of Digital + Humanities bring a variety of perspectives, research areas, and disciplinary methods. Events are an opportunity to come together as a community and interact with experts during Q&As. They are also just fun!
