The third U21 Digital Humanities workshop will take place at Lund University from 19 to 21 September 2012.

The conference will have Interfaces - Digital studies of culture and cultural studies of the digital as its theme. Provisional sessions titles include Digital heritage and digital preservation and Teaching and learning - the digital classroom. Early Career Researchers and graduate students will be welcome to attend, as well as established academics and practitioners in this area.

The first day of the workshop will be held at the Centre for languages and literature.  The Centre opened in 2004 and is the home for language, linguistic and literature disciplines at Lund University. It aims to create an environment where research can interact with both education and applications. The vision is to create an unique multidisciplinary research and education environment.

An important part of the research environment is the Humanities Laboratory. The Humanities Lab is a cross-disciplinary lab-environment for research and education concerning culture, communication and cognition.

The second day will be at Ingvar Kamprad Design Centre where the Department of Design Sciences pursues research and education focusing on the interaction between people, technology and design. Here we will visit the virtual reality lab.
