The ETCL engages in cross-disciplinary study of the past, present, and future of textual communication, and is a hub for digital humanities activities across the University of Victoria campus, from coast-to-coast, and around the world. ETCL acts as an intellectual centre for the activities of some twenty local faculty, staff, and students as well as visiting scholars who work closely with research centres, libraries, academic departments, and projects locally and in the larger community. Through a series of highly collaborative relationships, ETCL’s international research community comprises over 300 researchers. Our teaching and training initiatives like the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) bring together faculty, staff, and students from the Arts, Humanities, Library, and archives communities as well as independent scholars and participants from industry and government sectors; in its tenth year, the DHSI has welcomed more than 1200 people from around the world to its warm, collegial training environment.

Our speaker series and training activities have brought several hundred faculty and graduate student speakers to our campus, and our conference organisation and outreach activities have brought the best of our work to the world. Researchers, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate student assistants affiliated with the ETCL have gone on to further positions in industry and academia, including: tenure track faculty member, post-doctoral fellow, doctoral student, software developer, solution architect, director of technology, academic librarian, project manager, professional writer, multimedia consultant, web designer, and research director.
