Digital Humanities Center Spaces
About Our Spaces
The DH Center is a flexible, reconfigurable space designed to support a range of uses, including public lectures, workshops, instruction, networking, and project-based work. If you're interested in co-hosting an event, please review our usage policy before making your request.
We also host a range of studios to support critical digital inquiry. Studios are open to all SDSU faculty, staff, and students between 10am and 4pm Monday through Friday when classes are in session. See below for descriptions of each space, as well as links to our request systems.
DH Center staff are still available for virtual consultations and DH support.
