Please join the University of Toronto’s Critical Digital Humanities Initiative (CDHI) for the third in our Lightning Lunch series of 2021-2022, an important conversation about approaching DH work in ethical and culturally sensitive ways.
Lightning Lunches are panels of three DH scholars speaking about a theme over lunch. Our third discussion will be facilitated by Dr. Elisa Tersigni (JHI/CDHI postdoctoral fellow) and feature three of the CDHI’s inaugural graduate fellows: Carina Emilia Guzmán (PhD Candidate, Faculty of Information and the Mark Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies), who will be speaking about trans-feminist and queer archives and digital catalogues in Latin America; Mariam Karim (PhD Candidate, Faculty of Information and the Women and Gender Studies Institute), who will be speaking about her project on Arab women’s movements (1936-2020) information activism; and Taylor Thornton (PhD Candidate, Department of Anthropology), who will be speaking about the “Inuinnait Archaeology Atlas”, a collaboration including the Pitquhirnikkut Ilihautiniq/Kitikmeot Heritage Society (PI/KHS) and Carleton University’s Geomatics and Cartographic Research Centre that braids together traditional Inuinnait knowledge and archaeological data.
Owing to continued COVID-19 restrictions, our Lightning Lunches will be held online for the fall semester. Please register at this link.
