Digital Chamber Residency
The Digital Chamber is a co-working space located on Level 2 of the Digital Studio and has desks to house up to ten researchers working on digital humanities and social sciences projects.
It provides an enriching environment for co-working in the Digital Humanities, for exposure to international developments in the field, and the sharing of expertise about tools and platforms amongst its residents. Participation in the Digital Chamber can foster connections with other digital HASS scholars, promote your research and develop researcher expertise with digital tools and platforms.
The Digital Chamber has been used by research assistants, postdoctoral researchers, visiting fellows, and projects connected to digital research infrastructure both within the University and externally. Find out more about current research projects based in the Digital Chamber. We wish to expand this opportunity to a diverse range of potential candidates each year.
