Te Pōkapu Matihiko o Te Kete Aronui | the Digital Humanities Hub: Coming up in 2019


Heard about the digital in the Humanities, but wondering what all the fuss is about?

2019 will be a busy and exciting year at Te Pōkapu Matihiko o Te Kete Aronui | the Divisional Digital Humanities Hub as we explore local.global projects, demonstrate tools, and critique thinking and practice in the digital realms.

Open Hours  @ Te Pokapū

Open Hours are informal sessions where staff and postgraduate researchers, teachers and librarians can demonstrate or observe digital research tools, explore and critique digital projects, and critically discuss the context and politics of the digital in the Humanities. These are informal discussions, hosted by a librarian, academic or postgraduate student presenting on a Digital Humanities (DH) topic, and all voices (and people belonging to them) are welcome.

During February on Fridays @noon, we will be hosting weekly critical discussion and demonstration sessions divulging such diverse topics as definition, data, digitisation, and research presentation:

Note:  Open Hours sessions will resume again March 26th, with fortnightly discussions in Te Pokapū | The Hub @ 1pm.

Drop-In Sessions 

For the month of March, as the academic year begins, Humanities librarians will be in the Te Pokapū | The Hub for weekly drop-in sessions between 12 and 2pm. You are very welcome to stop by and check out the space, or chat to a Humanities Librarian about your research or teaching.
More details about the Open Hours and Drop-In Sessions can be found on the news section.

Research, Teaching and Consultation

You can book Te Pokapū | The Hub for research or teaching or a in-depth session with a digital humanities Librarian in the Hub at any time. We are happy to discuss your digital research project, relevant digital tools and exemplars. Contact AlexanderChris, Judy or Lisa.
