  • The Humlab blog - Good bye 2017. Say hello to 2018!


    It's now about time to summarize this year. It has been a quite intense year, but still really rewarding. Stability and progress, from my point of view, have characterized 2017. And we are looking forward to an interesting year ahead.

  • Tech Breakfast at Humlab


    This fall Humlab has launched the Tech Breakfast. Thursday, December 7, is the last breakfast for the semester. After the holydays, we plan to kick of another season of digital morning workshops. 

    Inspired by the Digital Humanities Center at Columbia University, the simple idea behind this initiative is to create a collaborative space for practical, critical, and theoretical explorations of digital methods and digital technologies. To the breakfasts, every second Thursday between 08.00-10.00 at Humlab X, scholars and students are invited to bring their own projects and ideas to work together or independently, and get hands-on support from Humlab staff with expertise in digital methods.

    The Tech Breakfasts have gathered researchers and students from various disciplines, both within and outside the humanities, such as archeology, data science, history, library studies, literature, media and communication, and sociology. 

    Welcome to join us for breakfast!
