DiSc Lab

The DISC Lab is a grassroots faculty-run community that gathers for regular discussions about the practices of digital scholarship. In addition to regular events, the DISC Lab will co-sponsor a THATCamp in the GTA in October 2011. The DISC Lab is also the creator of this networking site.

Beginning in the summer of 2011, we have been hosting two kinds of events. Our Hack Lab sessions feature faculty or students leading tutorials or workshops on technologies useful for a range of digital scholarship purposes. In our Yak Lab sessions, a member brings to the group a particular problem, relating to digital scholarship, that she or he is trying to solve, and we work together to develop ideas or approaches to the problem.

If there's a technology you'd like to learn, suggest it for our Hack Lab, or if you're struggling with a problem in one of your projects, bring it to the Yak Lab! You can contact us at disclab@utoronto.ca.

The DISC Lab also hosts a DISC Fellows Program, in which students work closely with faculty on issues relating to current DISC Lab work. Our Summer 2011 Fellows are three MA students at the U of T: Claire Baker (Faculty of Information Library and Information Science program), Shanifa Nasser-Sundarji (Department for the Study of Religion), and Nicholas Field (Department for the Study of Religion). Keep an eye out for our upcoming announcement of applications for our 2011-12 Fellows Program.
