September Offerings

  • most events are hosted on Zoom and are free and open to all registrants
  • also, check out the workshops hosted by the Collaboratory!
Currently, the Centre for Digital Humanities (CDH) is between spaces, and will hopefully have a new space in the Library (LIB) by Spring 2023. In the meantime, in Fall 2022 the Centre for Digital Humanities (CDH) will be holding weekly virtual drop-in sessions on Tuesdays from Noon-1 PM (usually on Zoom). These are intended as casual learning opportunities that bring together the DH community at Toronto Met and beyond.

Join us!

More About Weekly Themes

Each week in a month will be dedicated to a specific theme. The first week, Stories in Play: Let’s Try, will consist of a led, shared exploration of a work of electronic literature (eLit) or a narrative-driven digital game. Week 2, DH Workbench, will be a led, shared exploration of a digital resource or tool for research and/or pedagogy. Week 3, DH@TMU Reads, will be an open discussion of a selected work of DH scholarship, read in advance of the drop-in. The fourth week, Critical Code Studies, will explore how coding/programming can be studied in the humanities.
