Congress 2012 at Waterloo

There’s lots of good stuff going on at Congress this year, including much related to CWRC. Check out what’s here and send more to add to it!

Pre-Congress: Gentle introductions to Digital Humanities

On May 25, the day before Congress opens, there will be two introductory workshops on the Digital Humanities offered by SDH/SEMI at WLU: a morning one on what DH is and how to get started and an afternoon on markup and metadata. More here.

To register for one or both of these workshops email Brent Nelson at brent.nelson[at] before 15 May 2012. Space is limited, so register early.


Congress session

We have a session at Congress devoted to CWRC-related papers. I hope we’ll see many of you there:

Monday May 28, 4:00-5:30 Dr. Alvin Woods Building (DAWB) 2-108, Wilfrid Laurier University

Session 8B: Resituating Literary Scholarship: Collaboration and the Digital Spectrum  (ACQL)

1. “Making Space: Collaborative Technologies and the Rearticulation of Canadian Cultural Memory,” Erin Wunker, Dalhousie University
2. “Tools, Texts, and Teams : Scholarly Collaboration in the Canadian Context,” Constance Crompton, Raymond Siemens, and the Devonshire MS Editorial Group, University of Victoria
3. “All Together Now? Online Scholarly Infrastructure, Engagement and Community Building,” Susan Brown, Universities of Guelph and Alberta


CWRC gathering: May 28, 5:30-7:00

In the break between the session and evening activities I’d like to gather as many CWRC folks as are interested to go raise a glass somewhere. We’ll be on the Wilfrid Laurier campus, so we might do better to try to find something around there rather than trekking back to the beer tent if it’s on Waterloo Campus.  Please drop me an email if you want to come and I’ll make a plan once I’ve an idea of numbers.
