Cultural Networks Open House Pt.2

A follow up on our participation in International Week at WesternU with the open house about our involvement with Cultural Networks –


Mapping our collaborative work across the globe

We saw a great turnout at the Lab from very different departments. Representatives from History, Engineering, Law and International Learning were present and there was a lot of interest in the projects and tools from the Lab, with a special look at their collaborative nature.

We talked of our collaborative projects, specifically, the digitization efforts that are underway with Western Libraries, SylvaDB and it’s use in many of the Lab projects, the images gallery developed in collaboration with Prof. Ricardo Castro from McGill U., Festos, and last but not the least, Kurubee and its application on a global scale.

It was a brilliant experience welcoming academics of such varied backgrounds and having them share their work and experiences while exploring possibilities of further collaboration. We thank everyone for taking the time to visit us!
