Bodies of Information

Bodies of Information: Intersectional Feminism and Digital Humanities, part of the Debates in the Digital Humanities series, is out now from the University of Minnesota Press!

Our chapter, “Remaking History: Lesbian Feminist Historical Methods in the Digital Humanities,” shows how the LGLC project‘s methods were shaped by lesbian feminist historiography, starting with Jeanette Howard Foster’s Sex Variant Women in Literature.

DHSI 2016

We were lucky to be able to send five research assistants from the LGLC team to the Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria this June. They presented at the DHSI Colloquium on “Collection, Curation, and Collaboration: Representing Canadian Gay Liberationists.”

The LGLC Team: Nadine Boulay (Simon Fraser U); Anderson Tuguinay (Ryerson U); Stefanie Martin (Ryerson U); Seamus Riordan-Short (U British Columbia, Okanagan); Raymon Sandhu (U British Columbia, Okanagan); Caitlin Voth (U British Columbia, Okanagan)

Book Launch for “Cultural Mapping and the Digital Sphere”

I was honoured to be invited to speak at the book launch for Cultural Mapping and the Digital Sphere at the Modern Literature & Culture Research Centre. So great to hear updates from some of the participants who were at the second annual CWRC Conference at Ryerson way back in 2011.

DHSI 2015

This year I was lucky enough to attend the Digital Humanities Summer Institute along with the entire LGLC Team. RAs Travis White, Jessica Bonney, Raymon Sandhu, and Sarah Lane designed a poster on the project:

I took a class on Linked Open Data and RDF. I enlisted my entire class at DHSI in the task of choosing ontologies for the LGLC data set. I tried to pick some fun and challenging examples, like the best way to represent angry letter writing in RDF.
