DHSI – the Digital Humanities Summer Institute – is a humanities training program held every summer at the University of Victoria. Delivered over a week, each course is an intensive series of classes interspersed with colloquiums, unconferences, and other community-based events, and provides an ideal environment for influencing teaching, research, dissemination, creation, and preservation in different disciplines. Course offerings have historically included such topics as text analysis, data visualization, digital pedagogy, programming, topic modelling, and more.

UBC Library is continuing as a sponsoring partner of DHSI thanks to the support of University Librarian Susan Parker. As part of this sponsorship, the Library provides free registration – normally $950 with the early bird rate, or $1,250 at full cost – for five library employees to attend a course at DSHI 2019, June 3-7 or 10-14.

If you would like to be considered for one of these sponsored spots, please submit the following to digital.initiatives@ubc.ca by October 31st:

  • A short statement of interest (300 words max)
  • Your preferred course(s)
  • Source(s) of funding you would use to cover the other costs of attending DHSI (travel, accommodation, incidentals)
  • If you have attended DHSI in the past on UBC Library-sponsored spot: the years you attended and the courses you completed

Any UBC Library staff member with an interest in Digital Humanities is invited to apply. Submissions will be reviewed by members of the Library’s Digital Humanities Working Group; we hope to notify successful applicants by November 6th.

NOTE: Participants from sponsoring institutions can also attend DHSI at a reduced rate of $650, using a discount code. If you are planning to attend DHSI next year and are interested in registering at this discounted rate, please contact Larissa Ringham (larissa.ringham@ubc.ca) for the code *before you register*, as the discount cannot be applied retroactively.

We look forward to seeing your applications! Please let us know if you have any questions.

The Meiji at 150 Project commemorates the 150th anniversary of Japan’s 1868 Meiji Restoration. As part of the project, UBC Library digitized works from the Meiji period (1868-1912), including 21 woodblock prints, 1 hand-painted kimono book, over 41 photographs, a 7-volume book on the Ainu, and more. As part of the newly launched Meiji at 150 Digital Teaching Resource (DTR), fifteen visual essays were curated for the project to pair with the digital collection, providing historical context and analysis for many items.

This digitization project is generously sponsored by the Consulate-General of Japan in Vancouver.

Here are some highlights from the collection and their corresponding essays:


Woodblock prints

These Japanese woodblock prints depict Meiji modernization, showing Western architecture in Japan. Naoko Kato, Japanese Language Librarian at UBC Asian Library and DTR co-editor, explores these prints by focusing on Japan’s self-depiction in her essay, “Reviewing Meiji via Japanese-Canadian Connections”. Her essay draws connections with how Canadians viewed Japan and with Japanese-Canadian perspectives, pulling from other digitized materials in Open Collections. Fellow co-editor Tristan R. Grunow, from UBC’s Department of History, analyzes how these woodblock prints support a particular narrative of Ginza Bricktown in his essay “Ginza Bricktown and the Myth of Meiji Modernization”, when in fact modernization was not a straight-forward project.

Ikkei. Kaiunbashi Kawaseza no zu, [1872].

Utagawa, Kuniteru. Tōkyō Asakusabashi kisen shijo rōshō jōkyō tsūkō rakueki kōka no zu, [1874?].

Utagawa, Kuniteru. Daiichi Daiku Kyōbashi yori Shinbashi made renga ishizukuri shōka hanjō kisen sōtaku seikei, [between 1870 and 1874].

 


Moyō no hon (模様之本, “pattern book”)

This book contains 21 hand-painted kimono designs. Ayako Yoshimura’s essay “A Glimpse of Meiji Kimono Fashion” provides context, including the history of pattern books and the symbols in common motifs. Here are some of the designs – you can explore the full book here.

Moyō no hon, [between 1875 and 1880].


John Cooper Robinson Photograph Collection

As part of the Meiji 150 project, UBC Library digitized selected photographs from the John Cooper Robinson fonds, in Rare Books & Special Collections. John Cooper Robinson was a missionary and photographer who spent time in Japan from 1888 to 1925, photographing Japanese life in the Meiji period.

Allen Hockley’s essay describes how John Cooper Robinson used commercial photography studios as part of his amateur photography practice. In “J. Cooper Robinson: A Canadian Missionary and Photographer in Japan, 1888-1925”, Benjamin Bryce (Robinson’s great-great-grandson) explores Robinson’s photographic motivations and themes.

[Robinson, John Cooper]. Yokohama pier, May 1918.

[Robinson, John Cooper]. Main Street Karuizawa, August 1917.

[Unknown]. J.C.R. with Hilda and Cuth[bert] on back, [1900?].


Nishiki-e (錦絵, “brocade pictures”)

In “Meiji Daughters: Their Stuff and Fancy in Brocade Pictures, 1870s-1880s”, Miriam Wattles explores women’s roles and labor early in the Meiji period. Below are some images from the collection explored in-depth in her essay:

Hiroshige III. Rikuchū no kuni yōsan no zu. 6, [1877].

Hashimoto, Chikanobu. Shōgaku shōka no ryakuzu, [1887?].

 


To learn more, check out the Meiji at 150 Digital Teaching Resource, which provides a great entry point to Japanese-related digital collections at UBC. Thanks to a Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund grant awarded to the Scholarly Communications and Copyright Office, you can also view the essay collection as a digital book, Digital Meijis: Revisualizing Modern Japanese History at 150.
