Archaeology as Installation: Jerusalem’s Temple Mount and the Davidson Center for Exhibition and Virtual Reconstruction. Lecture by Lisa Snyder (UCLA). November 24.

Lisa Snyder from the UCLA Institute for Digital Research and Education will be in Lethbridge to speak to my Digital Humanities class on Monday November 23, 2015. She has also agreed to give a second talk, “Archaeology as Installation: Jerusalem’s Temple Mount and the Davidson Center for Exhibition and Virtual Reconstruction.”

The talk will take place on Tuesday 24, 2015 10:50-12:05 in Room L1170a (Linc building).

In 1999, the Israel Antiquities Authority turned to the Urban Simulation Team at UCLA to address this challenge through a landmark installation for the Davidson Center in Jerusalem.

Four National and International talks by University of Lethbridge Digital Humanities students

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:

On the Road: Adventures in Public Digital Humanities (Kim Martin on the DH Maker bus at the University of Lethbridge)

In 2013, Kim and two friends, Ryan Hunt and Beth Compton, purchased a 1991 school bus, which they have since converted into Ontario’s first mobile makerspace: the DH MakerBus (Makerbus.ca).

What started as a passion project quickly became an area of academic interest, and Kim now works to showcase the public benefits of humanities education in London and beyond. She is a co-lead on the Humanities Matters Bus Tour and is currently implementing a local chapter of 4Humanities in London, Ontario.

This paper discusses her experiences in establishing this project.

Speaker: Kim Martin, Library and Information Science, Western University
Date: Monday, September 29, 2014
