DIGITAL HUMANITIES: THE DH SEMINAR SERIES AT MTSU
Join us for brown-bag sessions on digital humanities, jointly hosted by Walker Library and the Association of Graduate Students in History.
The goal of the seminar series is to bring DH awareness to campus, giving students and faculty a chance to learn and explore DH topics and gain experience with DH scholarship. Each seminar has a keynote speaker and topic and is followed with an open discussion forum including project design questions, digital resources, best practices, theory and others. Attendance is welcome from anyone on campus with DH interests.
