Open Knowledge Practicum Celebration and Information Session

Hey all,

We are rapidly nearing the end of the Spring term, which also marks the end of the current iteration of the Open Knowledge Practicum hosted in the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab. The Open Knowledge Practicum is an ongoing 4-month program that invites members of UVic (students, faculty, and staff) and the Greater Victoria community to pursue their own research projects with support from the lab. During this program, fellows create open access platforms to communicate their research findings and contribute to existing open knowledge bases related to their topic.

From January to April 2018, we hosted Josie Greenhill, Paula Johanson, Molly Trepanier, and Harris Watt, whose research spanned a wide variety of topics, including literature, philosophy, mapping, and conference formats.

Please join us in celebrating our successful time together in the ETCL on April 3, 3:30-4:15 pm.

During this gathering, fellows will deliver lightning talks about their research. For those curious about the program, there will also be an information session about what the Open Knowledge Practicum is, how to apply, and what kinds of projects the practicum supports. If you know anyone else who might be interested in applying or passing this on to their community, please share this invitation with them.

Please indicate your participation here by 26 March and visit our website to get a sense of the practicum based on previous projects and to learn more about the ETCL.

I look forward to our time together!
