The Electronic Textual Cultures Laboratory at the University of Victoria (http://etcl.uvic.ca/) invites you to attend the first meeting of the 2015-16 Brown Bag Speaker Series. This is a series
of informal lunchtime seminars for faculty and graduate students in the Faculty of Humanities and across the university to discuss issues in digital literacy, digital humanities, and the changing
face of research, scholarship, and teaching in our increasingly digital world. For an hour once per month, we meet to hear from an invited speaker, share ideas, and build knowledge.
On Wednesday, 7th October, from 12 until 1 p.m., Bassam Chiblak, Lindsey Seatter, and Caroline Winter, PhD students in the Department of English, will be presenting a panel entitled, “The Digital Humanities in PhD Practice.” Details are below. Please share this announcement with anyone who might be interested in attending.
Wednesday, October 7th—12 - 1 p.m.
MacLaurin D115, University of Victoria
Abstract: This panel of English doctoral students will discuss the role of DH in the humanities PhD degree. Each panelist will speak on the extent to which they are incorporating DH methods and practices in their degree and research. Their presentations will also look to the future of DH in humanities graduate studies, answering the question, where does DH go from here?
Bassam Chiblak is a second year PhD student at the University of Victoria whose research focuses on Victorian illustrations, periodicals, and novels. As a former RA at the Centre for Digital Humanities at Ryerson University, he marked up the poetry in volumes 7 and 8 of the Yellow Book following TEI protocol for the Yellow Nineties Online, a project co-edited by Drs. Dennis Denisoff and Lorraine Janzen Kooistra.
Lindsey Seatter is a second year doctoral student in the English department. Her research is focused on exploring the patterns across Austen’s print and manuscript novels through distant and digital methods. Specifically, Lindsey is interested in interrogating the evolution of Austen’s narrative style and how these changes reflect the shifting social structures of Regency-era Britain.
Caroline Winter is a PhD candidate at the University of Victoria. She studies British Romantic literature, specializing in Gothic literature and economics.

Independent research, Allan Collier, will juxtapose photographs taken by architectural photographer Hubert Norbury (1897-1969) during the 1960s with current views of well-known buildings at the University of Victoria and elsewhere in Greater Victoria in order to plot changes in local modernist architecture over the last 50 years. Among the buildings Mr. Collier will discuss are UVic’s Student Union Building, the McPherson Library, and Clearihue Building, and within Greater Victoria Mr. Collier will consider the Victoria International Airport, Yates Street Mall, Royal Jubilee Hospital and others, including private homes. Hubert Norbury was born in Liverpool, England, in 1897 and immigrated to Canada in 1919. Turning to photography in retirement, Norbury captured Victoria’s architectural history during the 1950s and 1960s.
This lecture is part of the Treasures and Tea series in Special Collections and the University Archives at UVic Libraries. The series brings together researchers, instructors, students, and members of the community to explore and share materials from the collections. The informal show-and-tell presentations are followed by discussion and refreshments.
