Indigenous Digital Humanities at Ryerson presents: Justin Ducharme’s Positions (2018): Screening and Discussion
A screening of Métis artist Justin Ducharme’s short film Positions followed by a talk back led by Prof. Lindsay Nixon (English) and Prof. Eva Jewell (Sociology)
The Indigenous Digital Humanities Lab is a new CDH initiative directed by Lindsay Nixon. For more, see indigenousdigitalhumanities.
In Fall 2020, 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 Wednesdays from 4-5PM (usually on Zoom). These are intended as casual, fun events that bring together the DH community at Ryerson and beyond during COVID-19 restrictions.
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, Wiki Editing Blitz, a joint CDH and Library Collaboratory initiative, will involve collaborative creation/editing of content on Wikipedia (entries) and Wikisource (digital editions).
Wednesdays, 4-5 pm
