Are you a Digital Humantieis student or early career researcher in Belgium, who would like to discuss DH research with other DH colleauges in BE? come join the DH Virtual Discussion Group for Early Career Researchers in Belgium.
The series of discussions is geared toward early career researchers - students and researchers working in Belgian institutions who are interested in DH. This would provide a chance for new colleagues to become acquainted with each other across institutional boundaries, and for us to continue to engage in a rich discourse even though we are not in the same physical space.The first seminars will serve as conversation groups, where we will informally gather to discuss DH-related articles, podcasts, keynotes, projects, tools, or general topics together. Although each meeting will be facilitated by a moderator, this is not a lecture, rather a collaborative seminar among attendees, and we hope to encourage an environment where colleagues at all stages of their DH knowledge feel welcome to share their ideas and reactions. Please note that there are no prerequisites to attend: you do not need to be an expert in DH to participate in these discussions.
We propose to meet online once a month during the academic year 2020-2021. These meetings will be held during the working day for 90 minute sessions. Because of the linguistic diversity across our cohort of researchers and students in Belgium, the language of the sessions will be English. The dates for these discussions are Thursday 25 March (15h - 16h30); Thursday 22 April (15h - 16h30); Thursday 27 May (15h - 16h30).
Everyone who would like to join us for these sessions can register here. Once you have registered, the reading list for the discussion (and the layout of each of the sessions) will be forwarded to you two weeks before each session. We will also send a follow-up reminder email the week of each session, to hopefully gain more involvement from those who can't plan that far ahead due to ongoing and tenuous work and home schedules.
