Today we have welcomed the new semester at the Department of ALM and the first students at the Digital Humanities have gotten introduced to their two years at the programme. I know the whole department is eager to meet the new students and curious about what perspectives and ideas they will bring to the educational environment. Many of them are coming from abroad and do not only need to orient themselves in a new educational programme, but also in a new country and culture.
While finding their place in Swedish society is something that students mostly have to deal with on their own, teachers of the programme can at least support program orientation and overview. Today, all the teachers presented themselves and their courses.
I myself gave a brief overview of Information Mediation and User Perspectives in the Digital Era, which will be given in April next year. However, April is still many experiences and insights away, and until then I can only wish the students best of luck with their studies!
