DHSITE 2022: futur·e·s

Digital Humanities seeks to enrich our understanding of the human record through interpretation and analysis. This work is pressing, and we are unable to make informed environmental, political, or social decisions without understanding cultural and industrial systems around us. DHSITE 2022 is centered around developing a foundation in feminist-oriented theory and practices that seeks to build equitable, inclusive, diverse, and sustainable futur·e·s for teaching, learning, research and beyond.

This year, DHSITE will take place the week of May 24-27 and will feature a variety of workshops, micro-courses and public events. All programming will be offered bimodally, allowing for participants to join in-person or virtually.

Stay tuned the week of April 11-14 as we announce the DHSITE programming!

We are delighted to announce that Tanja Niemann and Lauren F. Klein will be the keynote speakers at DHSITE 2022. These presentations are free and open to DHSITE participants and to the public. Tanja Niemann will deliver her presentation in CreatorSpace (Pérez Hall, room 302) and will be streamed via Zoom for those unable to join us in person. Lauren Klein’s presentation will be accessible via Zoom.

We are also offering four intensive two-day workshops. These will be 10-hour workshops and are open to researchers, professionals, and students. These workshops are $250 for researchers and professionals and $100 for students and unwaged workers. Workshops will be taught bi-modally to allow for both in-person and remote participation.

This year, we are running three 18-hour (1.5 unit) micro-courses that will unfold through two 3-hour sessions a week between May 24 and June 10. Students may take these micro-courses to fulfill elective credits in their program of study or “out of program”. All micro-courses will be taught bi-modally so that participants may join in-person or virtually. After each week, participants will have small assignments to work on to apply the techniques learned in class.

This year’s micro-course topics include:

  • Introduction to participatory research in inclusive design (in English)
  • Animated Data Visualisation (in English)
  • Introduction to text analysis (in French)
