This year, the CDH will convene a reading group to explore the public digital humanities. The group is open to all levels of expertise and particularly welcomes those who might be new to the CDH in Firestone Library .

Each week we will pair an article or a set of brief readings with a notable public project or two. All readings & examples are online, linked below. Lunch will be provided.
