COLLABORATION: A Digital Humanities Conference

October 28-31, 2020 | Our conference theme was “Collaboration.” Collaborations of one kind or another are at the heart of most digital humanities projects: collaborations between researchers, between disciplines, between institutions, or between creators and users. The conference was designed to showcase DH research and infrastructure at UBC and beyond, to discuss the various types of collaboration made possible via the digital humanities, and to explore potential collaborations with colleagues at other universities in Canada and abroad.
