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.
