SHL Digital has an active programme of events to help nurture the next generation of researchers, and support colleagues gain new digital skills and engage with cutting edge research.
A termly Seminar Series of external speakers and Open Workshops, plus our Incubator Programme which aims at igniting conversations across campus to generate and develop new ideas and collaborations, open-door fortnightly research & technical surgeries, social events, and Research Forums open to all scholars.
We also run an annual Call for Project Proposals to provide seed funding for emerging ideas.
Our Seminar series brings leading scholars from around the world to explore a diverse range of topics and disciplines. Seminars take place on selected Mondays in the Sussex Humanities Lab and are open to all.
Our Open Workshop series offers training in Digital Humanities tools and methods. Workshops are open to all staff and postgraduate students, with some places available to undergraduates and members of the public. Workshops are generally aimed at beginner and intermediate level, and focus on the research needs of the humanities and social sciences.
Our Research Forum is a space for Sussex researchers and potential research partners to develop individual research projects, as well as nourishing our research community. At each forum we welcome three or more speakers to share projects at different stages of development:
- Updates on current funded projects to keep the community informed;
- Feedback on a project in planning to provide support during bid development and submission;
- Brainstorming around initial seeds of ideas for future projects in order to shape research funding bids.
We also regularly hold one-off special research events as part of ongoing research projects. These bring together academics from all disciplines, creative practitioners, industry and all kinds of communities to participate in engaged, outward-facing dialogue and projects. In addition to this, we regularly host creative arts events including installations, performances and exhibitions.
