And this time we’re meeting at a place that sells desserts!! Bring your questions, your thoughts, your ideas, and your dessert spoons!The focus of this month’s Taking DH Off Campus meeting will be upon inter/trans-disciplinarity and the Digital Humanities, so we hope to see our usual mix of people from a variety of academic backgrounds and perspectives. Previous meetings have featured attendees from English, Modern Languages and Literatures, History, FIMS, Western Libraries, and the Faculty of Education.

We will also be opening up the discussion to other subjects, so bring your own topic!
