Lisa Tweten

Project Manager

Lisa Tweten has been involved in the project from its inception in 2012. This summer she presented the team’s work at the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) in Victoria, which led to an invitation to Open Access Week at UBC’s Okanagan campus this fall, as well as the chance to co-author a submission for an upcoming  issue of Digital Humanities Quarterly featuring more in-depth looks at the work presented at DHSI. Lisa just returned from the EAGLE Conference in Paris, where she presented the digital imaging techniques pioneered by our project to the international community of epigraphists. She is currently working at Digital Initiatives to complete photography and editing of the epigraphic squeeze collection. At the end of September, Lisa pitched an idea for the development of a companion mobile app that will provide a visual complement to aid the study of our epigraphic squeezes with relevant historical context at the I3 Challenge, co-hosted by UBC’s Media and Graphics Interdisciplinary Centre (MAGIC) Lab and GRAND-NCE and was granted a three-month mentor-ship with MAGIC.
