  • Description: This Pixelating Mixer is calling for past DHSI (Digital Humanities Summer Institute) participants and any other interested parties to discuss developing a collaborative, UBC Library-based digital humanities project.

    Do you have an urge to use what you've learned for a real-world library application or initiative? Do you want to develop your webscraping, text analysis, geospatial visualization, digital storytelling, or text encoding (to name just a few) skills while collaboratively working towards a larger interdisciplinary project? Do you have an idea for a project that would help illuminate gems in UBC Library’s Open Collections or another open collection? Or do you just want to hear more about the possibilities of crowdsourcing and collaborating on a library-based DH project?

    Come continue discussing ideas for scoping a project together. All are welcome!

    Please Note: due to a candidate presentation, Pixelating this week will run from 12:00-1:00. Please feel free to come until 1:00 only, or stay for further discussion until 2:00.
