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 2015-16 “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, 23rd October
2:00-3:00
University Club (Lounge)
University of Victoria

Jana Millar Usiskin (UVic English), Christine Walde (UVic Libraries), and Caroline Winter (UVic English) will kick-off this year’s series by discussing their experiences working with linked data and the challenges and potentials derived from building digital ontologies for the Linked Modernisms project (http://ghostprof.org/linked-modernisms/).  According to Millar Usiskin, one of the many provocative questions this project has surfaced is, “How does a rhizomatic ontology encourage us to reconsider the networks of modernist production?”

Join us on Friday Oct. 23 to discuss such questions and learn about linked data and ontologies!
