The UiB Digital Humanities Network was established in December 2018, and includes researchers from all four departments in the Humanities Faculty, from Infomedia in the Social Sciences and from musicology in the Faculty of Art Music and Design. The network hosts events once or twice a month through 2019. We offer lightning talk sessions, where we hear about different DH projects at UiB, and workshops where participants can learn skills or discuss ideas, as seen in the image to the left. The network is led by Professor Jill Walker Rettberg.

Please subscribe to our mailing list to receive updates. We also have a calendar listing upcoming events.
