Digital Humanities in Practice
Closing Event Minor Digital Humanities
The University of Amsterdam (UvA) and VU University Amsterdam are working together in developing and strengthening the research field of Digital Humanities. One of the focal points of the collaboration is a minor in Digital Humanities. In the first semester of 2014-2015, minor students followed courses at both UvA and VU, exploring and discussing questions, methods and tools in Digital Humanities research. The final course ‘Digital Humanities in Practice’ offered students a chance to work in existing DH projects. In the closing event, students will proudly present their explorations and results.
Doors open – coffee/tea
