Donors and other guests were invited to explore what happens when the Humanities goes digital! Researchers in the Faculty of Humanities and developers in the Humanities Computing and Media Centre (HCMC) regularly work together to create inventive digital projects, teaching tools, maps, and online archives. This open house event showcased the work of 11 projects, from mapping literary place names in The Map of Early Modern London to revealing the unknown in Great Unsolved Mysteries in Canadian History. Humanities professors, programmers, and students were on-hand to guide donors through these digital resources and the rare materials, artifacts, and archives that inspired them. The event was part of Humanities Literacy Week, a celebration of what makes us human, presented by the Faculty of Humanities.
