The Electronic Textual Cultures Laboratory at the University of Victoria (http://etcl.uvic.ca/) invites you to attend the first of four sessions in the 2016-17 “Nuts and Bolts” of Digital Humanities series. These discussions focus on the pragmatics of DH research and tap into the experiences and expertise of people working on a variety of DH projects.

Details are below. Please share this announcement with anyone who might be interested in attending.

Friday, 21st Oct.

4:30-5:30 p.m.

University Club

University of Victoria

The ETCL is thrilled to invite you to a conversation with Catriona Duncan about her work as a research assistant on the digital project The Map of Early Modern London (MoEML). In her talk, Duncan will discuss how MoEML marries the digital with the early modern, bringing to life the city that shaped so much of our modern anglo culture. The digitized Agas map gives a visual representation of the city, while Stow’s The Survey of London provides historical and political context for topographical features.

Please join us on Friday, Oct. 21st at 4:30 p.m. at the University Club to chat about digital mapping, the intersection between the digital humanities and book history studies in Duncan’s work, and more!
