The VeDPH is continuing its seminar series in Digital and Public Humanities in an online format.
The autumn cycle includes seminars on a wide range of topics: from digital and public art history to open social scholarship, from public archaeology to new chances for cultural heritage, from public history to digital classics. The online seminars, which begin on 22 September, are open to all and free of charge. Video recording of seminars are available in our YouTube channel!
