Pixellating project showcase: BC through arriving eyes - immigrant stories and digital presentation

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 “BC through Arriving Eyes” project aimed to identify materials and resources related to the history of German immigration to western Canada and specifically British Columbia. The output is a website that presents a bibliography of materials in English and German on this subject (many held in the UBC Library). Beyond this, the project features interviews with immigrants to Canada conducted for the project. The site focuses on five case studies and presents interviews (audio and text transcripts) and photos provided by the interviewees.
