About the Digital Musicology Group
The Digital Musicology Study Group at Harvard University aims to provide a forum for the rich community of music scholars who are working on aspects of the digital humanities in the Boston area and beyond. In monthly sessions, scholars present their work and discuss implications, applications and future developments of their research. The series is supported by the Dean for Arts and Humanities and is hosted by the Barker Center and the FAS-IT group. All talks are free and open to the public.
With best regards,
Matthias Röder, Harvard College Fellow
