Spectrums of DH: A virtual lecture series in honour of Stéfan Sinclair
In August of 2020, the DH community around the world was deeply saddened to learn of Professor Stéfan Sinclair's passing. In recognition of Professor Sinclair's legacy as a pioneer of Digital Humanities in Canada and at McGill, renowned scholars of DH around the world gave a range lectures for Spectrums of DH. Lecture topics included abolitionist digital pedagogy, DH Queer studies, multilingual DH, decolonial e-literature, posthuman literary studies, big data, library sciences, and more.
McGill's mission with Spectrums of DH is to open the definitions of Digital Humanities to include not only computational studies on humanities topics, but methods and approaches in the field that fall into discussions around inclusion, ethics, and diversity. The series was a huge success averaging triple-digit attendance for each lecture as well as hundreds of views and shares when we posted the video lectures to our Facebook page.
