About the Lecture Series

This lecture series on Digital Humanities is organised by the Platform for Digital Humanities of the University of Antwerp.

The objective of the series is to sketch the evolving landscape of digital humanities to a mixed audience of different backgrounds and levels of expertise. Once merely a buzzword, ‘digital humanities’ is now developing into a legitimate discipline that is constantly expanding, and hard to define. In short, it is described as the use of computational methods and digital tools for research in Arts, Humanities, Cultural Heritage, and Social Science.

The diversity of the field is best illustrated through concrete examples from practitioners. For that reason, the Platform for Digital Humanities invites speakers from a variety of disciplines, all united by exceptional and interesting research projects.

The lectures are in English and are free to attend. However, registration is required. Please confirm your attendance by sending an RSVP e-mail to

All talks are announced in due time on the broader events page. But we also offer a more specific overview of all the upcoming talks in the Lecture Series, and an overview of all our past sessions.
