DHSoCal Research Slam

DH SoCal Research Slam

On 4 May 2013, CSUN will host the first DHSoCal Research Slam, bringing Digital Humanities scholars from across the Southern California to showcase their work. The Research Slam will take place in the Lakeview Terrace Room of the University Student Union at California State University, Northridge (CSUN).

Parking is available in lots G4 or G3 off of Zelzah Ave. Daily parking permits may be purchased from the information kiosk on Zelzah or from dispensers located in lot G3.
