Registration now open for the Miami University Digital Humanities Forum

Out of an abundance of caution and in following the recommendations of President Crawford, Governor DeWine, and state public health officials to minimize non-essential group gatherings, the Miami University Digital Humanities Forum​ has been postponed. We sincerely appreciate your understanding as we take steps to ensure the continued wellbeing of all our Miami community.
