About

The Berkeley Digital Humanities Working Group (BDHWG) is a “low-stakes, no-prep” place for the DH community to gather on a regular basis to keep each other abreast of current trends and new methods, and and exchange ideas. Members include a diverse range of students, staff, and faculty.

The group has bi-monthly discussions of recent digital humanities projects, workshops, and occasional speakers. In April, BDHWG hosts the DH Faire, an end-of-semester project showcase.

You can subscribe to our mailing list to receive information about DH happenings on campus or share announcements with the DH community. You can also via the #bdhwg hashtag.
