I am in Victoria for the week to attend this year’s Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria. As I sit here in my dorm room with its single bed and single window looking out to the ocean (and – in the foreground – a grassy patch that is redolent with rabbits during daylight hours), I realize that I have summer camp “butterflies”.
I am excited about the week ahead and thrilled about the late breaking scholarship award that had allowed me to be here participating in the week-long Online Journal Publication workshop using the Public Knowledge Project’s Online Journal System – one of but many amazing workshops taking place at this week’s institute. We are beginning and ending each day with Institute lectures, which I will aim to report back on. But there will also be the lure of fresh air and evenings far away from the computers after our full days of learning!
