Research

Critical digital humanities scholars are widely dispersed across the University of Toronto’s many divisions and three campuses. The central mandate of the Digital Humanities Network and the Critical Digital Humanities Initiative is to build and strength our research network. Faculty members have created over 40 digital humanities projects and labs over the past several years, and more are being founded each month. Do you have a project that you’d like to see listed here?

The Lexicon of Science in Asia is a fully searchable, multilingual database of scientific terms in Asian languages spoken across the continent, from the Eastern Mediterranean to the Pacific Ocean, designed to bridge gaps in regional language expertise and improve our understanding about how scientific knowledge and technology have been disseminated, translated, and adapted across different parts of Asia.

Digital Research Ethics Collaboratory (DREC)

Digital Research Ethics Collaboratory (DREC)

DREC works from the recognition that the current conditions of digital scholarship—the augmented scale, reach, exposure, access—offer research communities the opportunity to defamiliarize and denaturalize our participation in long-standing systems of exploitation and to reorient their work towards non-extractive research habits, protocols and relationships.

DH Italian-Canadian Foodways project

DH Italian-Canadian Foodways project

This project considers the place of food production and consumption in Italian-Canadian culture, examining cuisine as one of the defining traits of cultural identity for Italian immigrants that settled within the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) over the past one hundred years. It begins with an overview of the history of Italian immigration to Toronto and key neighbourhoods built and transformed by this diaspora, including the establishment of landmark food businesses that persist to this day. Using a sociocultural, historical lens, the project further highlights the impact and contributions of the Italian community on Toronto’s food industry, tracing the growth and enduring legacies of restaurants in the face of cultural demographic shifts towards the turn of the century. This project further outlines the importance of recognizing and preserving the culinary traditions of diasporas, particularly in times of crises that impact local businesses and threaten to erase the cultural footprint of immigrant communities.
