Digital Humanities Conference
Please join us for the UBC-V Public Humanities Hub inaugural conference on digital humanities featuring panels on textual DH, spatial DH, DH infrastructure, Digital Exhibitions, and more.
Our conference theme is “Collaboration.” Collaborations of one kind or another are at the heart of most digital humanities projects: collaborations between researchers, between disciplines, between institutions, or between creators and users. The conference is designed to showcase DH research and infrastructure at UBC and beyond, to discuss the various types of collaboration made possible via the digital humanities, and to explore potential collaborations with colleagues at other universities in Canada and abroad.
This conference is hosted by the UBC-V Public Humanities Hub, a three-year pilot project established in 2019 to foster and support collaborative research and to highlight and develop public-facing research in the Humanities at UBC-Vancouver. While this conference is virtual, the Hub is located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Musqueam people. The land it is situated on has always been a place of learning for the Musqueam, who for millennia have passed on their culture, history, and traditions from one generation to the next on this site.
