Lightning Lunches, Fall 2020

Due to COIVD-19, the Digital Humanities Network has decided to hold virtual Lightning Lunches this fall. While we may not be able to gather around a meal in person, you can still expect fantastic presentations and dialogue. Programming is currently underway for our first two gatherings, and we are excited to hear your suggestions for topics and speakers in November and December (see below). Watch upcoming newsletters for specific dates and times as we finalize the details for the first meeting in September!

We Want to Hear From You!

Given the online format of this semester's Lightning Lunches, we have the opportunity to transcend physical distance by inviting speakers from the University of Toronto, the Greater Toronto Area, and beyond. If you would like to suggest a Digital Humanities-related theme, methodology, or scholar for the lunches, please email Jennifer Ross at  

DHN Listserv

Have a research question? Find an exciting event or call for papers? Post to the DHN Listserv to spread the word or call upon the expertise available from the community of DH scholars.


As always, we welcome newsletter submissions of other events, CFPs, job postings, or digital resources that may be of interest during this time. Stay safe and take care!
