Queer Digital Humanities workshop at DHSI 2017

Sunday, June 11, 2017 - 4:00pm

Free, collaborative afternoon workshop associated with the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) at the University of Victoria. Please join us to explore the intersection of LGBTQ issues and the Digital Humanities from 1:00 - 4:00 pm on Sunday, June 11.

This workshop will consist of pre-selected and participant-selected discussion of ‘keywords’ of relevance to DH and LGBTTIQ+ scholarship. Possible keywords include: access, activism, archives, classification & metadata, community engagement, cultural/social critique, encoding, gaming, intersectionality, methodology, pedagogy, programming, storytelling. The final portion of this workshop will be dedicated to designing a DHSI course on “Intersections of DH and LGBTTIQ+ Studies,” with particular emphasis on mixing discussion with hands-on, skill-based learning activities.
