CESTA Seminar Series

Every Tuesday lunchtime (12-1.15PM) during the academic quarter, researchers from across the Stanford community and beyond come together for presentations of new work in the digital humanities.

Currently, our events are primarily in a hybrid format, with some entirely online. You may join our events remotely via Zoom (you can find a registration link on the page of every event.) If you do not have Zoom installed, you can download it for free here.

Recordings of some of our past seminars are available on CESTA's Youtube Channel.
