DH Afternoons Banner Image

DH Afternoons is a forum dedicated to supporting and celebrating Digital Humanities work being done by students, staff, and faculty on campus. Please join us to learn about the exciting advancements being made by the DH community here at UNL.

Each DH Afternoon is comprised of a 20 minute presentation from a student, staff member, or non-CDRH faculty member, followed by a 20 minute presentation by a CDRH faculty fellow or affiliate. There is time for discussion following the talks.
