The Critical Digital Humanities Initiative (CDHI) at the University of Toronto cordially invites student submissions to our 2024 celebration and showcase on Tuesday, April 9, 2024.  

DH Fest highlights critical digital humanities research and knowledge mobilization. Our program includes a special showcase of graduate and undergraduate research in a poster session. We invite you to share your research poster and to answer questions and interact with other participants during the poster showcase.
