Centre for Digital Humanities

Walk-in Hours

Do you have a question about research software, digital sources, programming, or statistics? Or are you just finding your way in the field of digital humanities and do you need some expert guidance? All humanities staff and students are welcome to visit our weekly Digital Humanities Walk-in Hours on Thursdays from 14:00 to 15:00 hrs.

During the DH Walk-in Hours various digital humanities specialists will be present to provide you with consultancy. The team is comprised of a scientific developer from the Research Software Lab, a member from Research Data Management (RDM) Support and a DH specialist of the University Library.

We can advise on, for example:

  • how to analyze your data with R or Python;
  • creating and sharing datasets, or data security;
  • the technical component of your research (funding) proposal;
  • finding appropriate existing research software, or the development of new tailor-made applications;
  • how to optimize your self-written code;
  • acquiring, archiving, and accessing qualitative and quantitative data;
  • using digital humanities methods in education;
  • automatic optical character or handwriting recognition;
  • digitized full-text corpora and Linked Open Data;
  • your quantitative research design, and which methods and statistical analysis to use.


Every Thursday from 14:00 to 15:00 hrs. The last Walk-in Hour before the Christmas break is on December 14th, 2023. We will resume the Walk-in Hours starting from January 25th, 2024.
