We’d like to invite you to join us for the first Nuts and Bolts session of the new academic year! The Nuts and Bolts discussions are designed to focus on the pragmatics of DH research. Details are below:
Friday, October 13
The Electronic Textual Cultures Lab
McPherson Library, A314
University of Victoria
We’re delighted to have Sara Humphreys kicking things off with a discussion of using Twine (https://twinery.org/) for her research:
What are the processes and practicalities of turning an academic edition into a text-based game? This interactive and inclusive discussion is less interested in why anyone would remediate a print edition into an online game and more interested in how to go about such a project. In addition to the sheer logistics of such an undertaking, there are ethical questions to tackle, such as representation and access.
Sara Humphreys is a settler Assistant Teaching Professor in the Department of English. She is also an Open Knowledge Practicum Fellow with the Electronic Textual Cultures Laboratory (ETCL).
