Decoding Digital Humanities Decoding Digital Humanities (DDH) is a series of informal monthly meetings for anyone interested in research at the intersection of computational technologies and the humanities. Founded at University College London, these gatherings provide an opportunity to discuss readings and raise questions, but also to mingle and share ideas with others in the field of digital humanities.
DDH has now gone global, with new chapters launching all over the world:
The Roundup gathers everyone's most recent updates, so you don't have to.
If you have any suggestions for subjects to discuss or articles to read, please send them to email@example.com. Please write to the same address if you would like to set up a DDH Global chapter.
