Pixellating project showcase: global storybooks

Pixellating is a monthly Digital Humanities (DH) mixer. It is an opportunity for DH scholars and students from across campus to meet colleagues, talk tools, brainstorm ideas and network with others who use digital tools to explore and visualize their research. This month we will be featuring a project showcase with time for a Q&A afterward.

This project showcase will discuss the development of the Global Storybooks project at UBC, focusing in particular on Storybooks Canada and Indigenous Storybooks. Global Storybooks is a free, multilingual-literacy resource for children and youth worldwide. Users can read, download, toggle, and listen to a wide variety of illustrated stories from the African Storybook and other open sites. Detailed information can be found in a January 2020 article in The Conversation.
