Fabuludus 2021 submissions:


In Winter 2021, in place of the drop-in hours it holds at its space in Ryerson University Library, the Centre for Digital Humanities (CDH) will be holding weekly virtual drop-in sessions on Thursdays from 3-4 pm (usually on Zoom). These are intended as casual, fun events that bring together the DH community at Ryerson and beyond during COVID-19 restrictions.

Weekly Themes

Each week in a month will be dedicated to a specific theme. The first week, Stories in Play: Let’s Try, will consist of a led, shared exploration of a work of electronic literature (eLit) or a narrative-driven digital game. Week 2, DH Workbench, will be a led, shared exploration of a digital resource or tool for research and/or pedagogy. Week 3, DH@Ryerson Reads, will be an open discussion of a selected work of DH scholarship, read in advance of the drop-in. The fourth week, Procedural Creativity Workshop, will explore digital resources and platforms useful for creative activity.

Join us!
