JUNE 14-17, 2021

Dream Lab is a week-long digital humanities training opportunity hosted by the University of Pennsylvania and designed to help humanists become more confident and thoughtful users, creators, and critics of digital technology. There are 9 courses to choose from, each of which combines technology instruction with practical application. Dream Lab is open to everyone but has been designed especially to serve early-stage scholars aspiring to be teaching faculty, research librarians, or archivists. In order to keep everyone safe in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year the institute will be held entirely online.

While we’re disappointed that we won’t be together in person, we’re happy to announce that Dream Lab 2021 will be free to all attendees!

Dream Lab is organized by the Price Lab for Digital Humanities and the Penn Libraries.


Price Lab’s week-long digital humanities training institute Dream Lab was canceled in 2020 due to safety concerns around COVID-19. We created a podcast series, not as a replacement, but rather to introduce you to some of the people who make Dream Lab such a great experience!
