4th UC Digital Humanities Meetup

Tuesday 30 May, 3-5pm

UC’s Puaka-James Hight Library, Room 388

All welcome Facebook event

Facebook group: UC Digital Humanities Meetups

Omeka is a free, open-source web publishing platform for the display of collections and exhibitions. It’s used by libraries, museums, archives, scholars and communities around the world – including students and researchers here at UC, with the support of the UC Arts Digital Lab.

Staff from the Lab will showcase two key Lab projects that demonstrate the power and versatility of Omeka, and will walk participants through setting up a simple Omeka site. You’ll get the most out of this workshop if you bring your own laptop with VirtualBox installed. If you don’t have a laptop, you’ll still be able to follow along on the main screen, or by pairing up with someone.

If you’d like help installing VirtualBox, feel free to drop into the UC Digital Arts Lab (Karl Popper 414) any day between 9-5pm, before Tuesday 30th.

Contact Kara for more details.

Internet Memes: The crumbling boundaries between the serious and the unserious

University of Canterbury’s Puaka-James Hight Library Building, Room 388

Wednesday, 26 April, 15:00 - 17:00

Public; no registration needed
Facebook event
Facebook group: UC Digital Humanities Meetups

The study of Internet memes is new both as concept and practice. This is largely due to the novelty of the concept itself, as well as the academic resistance against the serious study of the unserious. But the boundary between the serious and unserious is crumbling, and cyberculturally literate scholars have emerged to tackle the task of studying memes. 

This presentation will explore the three major traditions of meme studies in their historical, theoretical and cultural contexts, introducing the most prominent thinkers and how they are shaping the future of meme studies. The presentation will be followed by a workshop in which participants will learn how to start their own memepage on Facebook. A laptop or a smartphone is recommended for the workshop, but not required.

We will hear from International experts on copyright and innovation:

  • William Patry - Senior Copyright Counsel at Google
  • Meredith Jacob - Assistant Director, Academic Programs, Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property, American University Washington College of Law

This event will also be live-streamed and you can watch it from this link
