Congratulations to CDTPS Professors Seika Boye and Jill Carter on being awarded the Critical Digital Humanities Initiative’s Emerging Project Fund. Each award of $10,000 is designed to support faculty research in critical digital humanities.

Professor Boye leads the team project, “Look at These Oral Histories!: Graphic Recording and Visual Data in Dance Research” which brings together two dance history projects. She'll be creating new graphic recordings using oral history interviews from Black Canadian dance artists.

Professor Carter along with Professor Jon Johnson lead the project, “Developing a New First Story Toronto Website.” The project aims to create a website that hosts diverse digital content supporting the First Story Toronto initiative. The team intends to transform how Torontonians share stories about land and place by amplifying Indigenous voices, leadership, and stewardship

The CDHI has been funded by the University of Toronto’s Institutional Strategic Initiatives program.
