The Centre for Digital Humanities (CDH) engages in collaborative research at the critical intersection of the material and the digital, contributing to scholarly and societal knowledge about cultural objects, makers, and users.

from the Mission Statement

 

Digital humanities foregrounds the deeply recursive ways in which meaning and interpretation are bound up with materiality, media, and embodied navigation.

CDH members Reg Beatty, Rebecca Martin, and Lorraine Janzen Kooistra just returned from the British Association for Victorian Studies conference in Dundee, Scotland. Their presentation was called "Critical making, Renewel and The Evergreen a Northern Seasonal." Lorraine Janzen Kooistra also delivered a plenary talk entitled "Women Designers and Celtic renewals."

A keepsake postcard was made for the event as well as a book (including the participation of Emma Fraschetti) as part of the panel. A digital flipbook version of the book is available here.
