Who is h.lab?

We are a community of humanities and humanities-friendly scholars and students and who are interested in discovering and pursuing new questions as they emerge in the process of hands-on learning and experimentation with new computational tools. We come from a wide range of scholarly fields and areas of domain expertise, and we represent all levels of technical experience -- from none to a lot. If you're interested in taking part, we'd love to hear from you!
