The UCLA Digital Humanities Reading Group meets twice a quarter at UCLA to discuss the work of a student, faculty, or staff member at UCLA (or any other school in the area). If you think you might be interested in presenting your work in the 2011-2012 academic year, please email me at David Shepard with a brief description of a project you might like to present and, roughly, when you would want to present it ("January" or "early winter" is close enough). Projects should be digital humanities related (broadly defined), and can include research, pedagogy, or anything in between. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
