This message from Aaron Mauro at the ETCL: The Electronic Textual Cultures Laboratory at the University of Victoria invites you to attend the 2012-13 Brown Bag Speaker Series. This is a series of informal lunchtime seminars for faculty and graduate students in the Faculty of Humanities and across the university to discuss issues in digital literacy, digital humanities, and the changing face of research, scholarship, and teaching in our increasingly digital world. For an hour once per month, we meet to hear from an invited speaker, share ideas, and build knowledge.

On Thursday, 10 January, from 12 until 1 p.m., the University of Victoria’s own HASTAC Scholars (a group of graduate students in the humanities working on the digital humanities and affiliated with HASTAC) will be delivering a panel presentation on their research and their experiences as graduate students working in the digital humanities. Details are below. Please share this announcement with anyone who might be interested in attending.
