SpokenWeb, a SSHRC-funded Partnership Grant, led by Principal Investigator Dr. Jason Camlot, is seeking two (2) candidates to participate in the design and development of interfaces for the meaningful presentation of metadata to researchers, students, artists and the public.
Before we announce the winners, we wanted to take a moment to acknowledge and publicly thank the judges who took the time to engage with the many great proposals we received, and to select the ones they felt best fit the criteria of our call.
As a research network that involves scholars, students, artists and community members across North America, SpokenWeb condemns racism, and supports those who are actively protesting against structural anti-Black racism and violence. We condemn the murder of George Floyd and the hatred and violence against Black communities that it represents. We support Black Lives Matter and believe it is crucial to amplify the conversation this movement has initiated.
SpokenWeb’s work in discovering, preserving, and sounding voices of the past is motivated in great part by the desire to challenge canons of literature, and reimagine Canadian and North American literary and cultural history by listening and attending to voices that had previously been silenced. Our work has been and will continue to pursue the goal of providing support and platforms to artists of diverse backgrounds whose work helps us see and resist structural racism and other forms of violence and oppression.
