Workshops and Seminars
As part of this initiative, innovative hands-on workshops, thought-provoking seminars and lectures around emerging topics and issues are offered to the Queen’s community. The complete programme of workshops and lectures is available on the Events page. A complete list of the various workshops and seminars we have developed is also available. These are open to all staff and students, but often require advance registration as spaces are limited. If you would like further information, please fill out the contact form on this site.
Workshops, lectures and seminars are designed to initiate and encourage ongoing conversations around emerging trends and core principles in humanities and related disciplines. They are intended to both enrich the thriving digital humanities community at Queen’s and to respond to the particular needs of practitioners in the community.
Speaking of keeping in contact … please do feel free to comment on the events page if there are workshops that would be of particular interest to you.
