Digital Humanities: Challenges and Opportunities

We invite you to attend our first discussion event to celebrate the establishment of the University of Reading’s Digital Humanities Hub.

Online (MS Teams): Link to join the Teams meeting on the day here.

Come along if you would like to:

  • Learn about what Digital Humanities (DH) is and what it can do for your research
  • Be inspired to do something new, or to seek out new collaborators, or to consider your previous or current work as DH
  • Be introduced to the debate on best practice for digital research, and why it’s important to your discipline even if you do not currently use digital tools yourself

About the Digital Humanities Hub

The Digital Humanities Hub supports researchers to enhance the quality and innovation of their research through engagement with digital tools and methodologies.

We can help you to find out how you might be able to apply digital approaches to areas of your research, build knowledge, skills and community, access training and networks, organise workshops or presentations on digital themes relating to your department or research project, develop research proposals and applications, undertake a research project and secure its legacy.

Visit our online portal to learn more about digital humanities, the support and resources available, and how to contact the team.

Consider also joining our Community of Practice, a friendly space for researchers to collaborate, share ideas and skills, and discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by Digital Humanities as a field.

If you have any questions, please contact the Hub team on digitalhumanities@reading.ac.uk
