Siobhán McElduff is an associate professor in the Department of Classical, Near Eastern and Religious Studies. She likes OER because she too was a poor student who once co-owned a volume on Roman history with two other students. Her OER projects (readers on ancient spectacles, and stigma and difference in the Roman empire) have arisen out of classroom needs and with student aid – none of them would be possible without their feedback and work. Her current project, UnRoman Romans, focuses on showcasing the strength and power in undergraduate research, and how OERs can harness that for the good of other students.

Pixellating is a monthly Digital Humanities (DH) mixer that happens in the UBC Library. 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.

Location: Koerner Library, Rm. 480
