Digital Humanities Workspace

The Digital Humanities (DH) Workspace is a physical workspace for workshops, lectures, and digital research and education, situated in the University Library City Centre. This is where most CDH workshops and lectures and the Digital Humanities Walk-in Hours take place. All researchers, teachers, data and software experts of Utrecht University can use the DH Workspace to meet, collaborate and exchange knowledge.

Meeting space

Digital, data-based research requires the combination of various expertises. The DH Workspace offers the facilities for this. The workspace is also suitable for training and workshops, online collaboration, and for live streaming.
