Annual Meeting of the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes (CHCI)
2011 Annual Meeting of the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes (CHCI)
The 2011 CHCI Annual Meeting will explore the multiple ways that cities are archives for the humanities. Some content is designed for CHCI members, who are Directors and administrators of humanities institutes, but most is open and designed to meet the interests of the University of Toronto scholarly community.
We hope that in addressing this question we will be able to consider new modes of engagement between research faculty in the humanities and the digital world, and to encourage broader participation in digital research projects. This additional day requires no additional registration fee, and we encourage all to join us for what will likely be an exciting and informative discussion. A schedule for the event can be found below.
