CWRCshops

CWRCshops (“Quirk-shops”)

The Canadian Writing Research Collaboratory / Le Collaboratoire scientifique des écrits du Canada or CWRC (cwrc.ca) is an online platform for literary study. We offer this series of workshops introducing the CWRC platform and two major projects hosted by CWRC: the Editing Modernism in Canada project, which has its own interface called the Modernist Commons, and the Orlando Project, which is migrating to CWRC and inviting external contributions. No prior experience with digital tools or methods is required. Participants should bring a laptop computer (not a tablet).

CWRCshop 1: Intro to CWRC (Sept. 20th, 9:30-12:00, Digital Humanities Research Studio, Room L2-5a, Humanities Centre)

This overview of CWRC’s online workspace for individuals and teams of scholars will include how to navigate, search and access CWRC content; how to add content to your personal research space, how your personal dashboard works, and how to visualize CWRC materials using Voyant Tools.

Led by Susan Brown, Jeffery Antoniuk, and Mihaela Ilovan

CWRCshop 2: Working in CWRC (Sept. 20th, 1:30-4:00, Digital Humanities Research Studio, Room L2-5a, Humanities Centre)

This CWRCshop will focus on more advanced functionality such as the creation, digitization, enhancement, and editing of digital texts within CWRC. It will also provide an overview of projects and the associated proposal and peer review processes.
