Lightning Lunch: “Beyond the Digital Book,” 4 Dec. 2019

DHN lightning lunches focus on a specific topic or contemporary issue. By inviting experts from different disciplines to explore the intersections of their work, these events lead to the formation of new networks, research projects, and shared knowledge.

This lightning lunch, “Beyond the Digital Book,” explores the topics of digitization, text analysis, and digital editing and bibliography. After a catered lunch, speakers will present for 5-7 minutes, followed by an informal discussion.
