    This year, DDHL will cover a range of topics at the cutting edge of research in digital humanities.

    About this event

    Decoding Digital Humanities London (DDHL) is a bi-weekly reading group for anyone interested in research at the intersection of computational technologies and the humanities. These gatherings provide an opportunity to discuss readings, raise awareness of topics at the forefront of research, and spark new questions.

    DDHL aims to be place for connection for the digital humanities post-graduate community in the UK and Ireland, but welcomes participation from anyone who is interested.

    As part of an effort to make sessions more accessible, 3 sessions will meet virtually (via Zoom), while the other 3 will be in-person at UCL's Bloomsbury Campus in London.

    Links for the articles to be discussed are included below. We suggest reading as much of the article set for each session prior to attending.

    DDHL is grateful for support funding from the UCL Institute of Advanced Studies Octagon Small Grants Fund.
