Day of Digital Humanities 2023 (24 April)

Day of Digital Humanities (DH)

Day of DH began in 2009, at the University of Alberta and has been hosted by other institutions since that time. Day of DH has also been adopted by specific language communities that extend beyond national borders. In 2023, the Research Institute for the Humanities (RIH) in collaboration with the University Library’s Digital Scholarship Lab will host the first-ever Day of DH on the University campus.

The goal of the project, is to bring together participants to reflect on the question, “Just what do computing humanists really do?” To do this, participants will attend a lecture to be given by Keynote speaker, Professor Donald Sturgeon, creator and administrator of Chinese Text Project ( and Assistant Professor, Department of Computer Science, Durham University (UK).  Followed by a guided tour at the Digital Scholarship Lab and the MakerSpace 3-D printing Lab. After lunch, participants will form into groups to take part in a half-day hackathon, a fun, easy and rewarding data scraping competition.
