UBC-Vancouver 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.

The Digital Humanities Conference would not be possible without the wonderful support of the following institutions and individuals. We are very grateful for the many volunteers who contributed so much to the success of #dhUBC2020.
