Library Lunches

Faculty Library of Arts and Philosophy and Ghent CDH proudly present:

Library Lunches with a taste of DH
12:00 – 13:30 @Library Lab Magnel, Faculteitsbibliotheek Letteren en Wijsbegeerte, Rozier 44

Join us at our monthly ‘library lunches with a taste of DH’ where the Faculty Library of Arts and Philosophy offers researchers, staff and colleagues a fascinating talk and sandwich during the lunch break. For each lunch session, we invite an expert speaker to talk about a topic at the intersection of (digital) humanities research and librarianship. We provide sandwiches and coffee/tea/water, and we allow time for a Q&A or informal chat afterwards with the speaker and the other attendees.
