Event description

Description

The Indigenous New Media Symposium will be a two-day event held on the traditional territory of the WSÁNEĆ (Saanich), Lkwungen (Songhees), Wyomilth (Esquimalt) peoples of the Coast Salish Nation as part of the 2018 Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI). The symposium will be a starting point for an extensive capacity building and knowledge mobilization project at DHSI that will include the production of best practice materials and models to support Indigenous peoples and research in the digital humanities (DH). This initial symposium will bring together scholars from across the social sciences and humanities, including Indigenous Studies, English, Psychology and Human Development, and First Nations and Endangered Languages. Scholars, students, artists, and community members will collaborate closely with one another on a range of projects employing digital technologies in Indigenous contexts. This symposium builds out of Indigenous new media research and curricula developed by Nisga'a poet and DH scholar Jordan Abel and Dr. David Gaertner over the past five years in the First Nations and Indigenous Studies Program (FNIS) at the University of British Columbia and the English department at Simon Fraser University, respectively.
