Digital Assets in Action
Saskatchewan’s unique and diverse cultural assets are also among the world’s most isolated and geographically dispersed for a digital initiative such as this. Along with content from libraries and archives, museums across Saskatchewan have been keen to contribute materials. This content, along with items from private collectors, historical societies and other information providers, make SHO the most diverse source of Saskatchewan related digitized cultural heritage content anywhere.
A SSHRC-funded study by Joanne Leow (Faculty Member in English at the University of Saskatchewan) of the waterfront developments and relevant cultural texts from Singapore, Hong Kong, and Vancouver. This project examines the sonic materialities, poetics, and politics of reclaimed land in all three sites. The online resource consolidates this collaborative research. It features field recordings from these coastlines, interviews with artists and writers, literary readings, short films, and annotated bibliographies.
