EVENT: Lightning Lunch: Old Data, New Data

The Critical Digital Humanities Initiative at the University of Toronto is hosting their fourth virtual lunch in their 2022-2023 lightning lunch series on February 17 at 12pm EST. The session will explore “digital humanities approaches working with new data and ethics — and the afterlives of old data.”

The conversation will feature three speakers:

  • Dr. LK Bertram (Associate Professor of History at Out), who will talk about how scholars use high-yield data packaging strategies to combat digital disinformation campaigns.
  • Dr. Katie Mackinnon (CDHI Postdoctoral Fellow in Community Data), will share her research on ethics and internet archives.
  • Dr. Frances Corry (Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania’s Center on Digital Culture and Society), will discuss her project that examines the process of social media platform closure and content deletion in order to ask about the future of cultural memory.

Advance registration required for this free online event.
