Four National and International talks by University of Lethbridge Digital Humanities studentsPosted: February 2, 2015
A quick catchup post: this semester is shaping up to be a blockbuster in terms of University of Lethbridge Digital Humanities students’ success in national and international refereed conferences.
The semester began strongly with Kayla Ueland’s presentation “Reconciling between novel and traditional ways to publish in the Social Sciences” at the Force 2015 conference in Oxford this past January. Ueland is a graduate student in Sociology and a Research Assistant in the Lethbridge Journal Incubator.
We have also just heard that four students and recent graduates of the University of Lethbridge’s Department of English have had papers accepted at the joint meeting of the Canadian Society for the Digital Humanities/Société canadienne des humanités numériques and the Association for Computers and the Humanities.
The students and their papers are:
- Titi Babalola Aiyegbusi, “Decolonizing Digital Humanities in Africa.”
- Kendra Rawluk and Carissa Alexander, “Disability: The Last Frontier for DH.”
- Gurpreet Singh, “Developing Text-to-Speech for Religious Scripture: Shiri Guru Granth Sahib.”
Babalola Aiyegbusi is a recent graduate of the department’s M.A. programme (2014). Rawluk and Alexander, are both fourth-year undergraduates. Singh is a first year M.A. student.
