September Offerings

  • CDH events are open to the TMU community and beyond.
  • Also, check out the workshops hosted by the Collaboratory!

Currently, the Centre for Digital Humanities (CDH) is between spaces, and will hopefully have its own space in the Library building (LIB) soon. In the meantime, for 2023-2024, the CDH will be holding some of its events virtually (on Zoom) and some in-person at the TMU Library. Some events may be hybrid.

Join us!
