What is HUMlab?
HUMlab is a meeting place of the humanities, culture and information technology (or ‘the digital’) at Umeå University, Sweden. We do education, research and different kinds of development work in digital humanities as well as digital culture and innovation. We work with students, faculty, industry relations, artists and many others.
Are you a place?
Yes, much of the work is channeled through our physical and digital environments. We have two labs in Umeå – one on the main campus and one on the Arts Campus.
How long does it take to walk from one lab to the other?
About 15 minutes if you walk reasonably fast. Walking is recommended. Finding parking can be a nuisance.
When was HUMlab started?
It was started in the late 1990s, and formally made into an “academic unit” by the University Board in 2000.
