On Monday 9 September 2019, the second Research Day of the Faculty of Arts and Philosophy takes place. Central theme is ‘digital humanities‘.

From a research perspective the term ‘digital humanities’ refers to the use of digital tools in existing research in the humanities, but also to new methodological opportunities and challenges arising from the use of digital tools, and even to the development of new methods for and to face new scientific challenges.

The faculty wants to focus on the digital literacy of its staff in the coming years. During the Research Day we organize several lectures and information sessions, and we highlight the research of our faculty.
