DIN Seminar Series

QMUL researchers have been organising Digital Humanities seminars since 2010. The series was first established as the London Digital Humanities Group, and between 2012 and 2014 it met at Senate House. Since Autumn 2014 it has been part of the Digital Initiatives Network and meets at QMUL’s Mile End campus. Meetings are designed to create community through the sharing of work in-progress, pitching ideas, and providing forums for networking and strategising. More information on previous seminars is available, as is our Programme of Events, below.

Our seminar series will convene seven times this year. These seminars will take place on Mondays 5-6pm, unless otherwise stated. Please note that the semester 2 room has changed to Scape 1.04 (the residential building across the Mile End road from the main campus):
