Over the last decade, the Sherman Centre has supported digital projects by graduate students, faculty, staff, and community groups.
- A relational database on racialized violence and an open-access database of microbotanical specimens
- Interactive maps of community-engaged research projects and the Porcupine Gold Rush
- A searchable database of McMaster experts
- A website that consolidated resources and guidance on building safe learning environments through an anti-racist framework
- Digital exhibits on Hamilton landmarks, the spread of the plague, archival treasures from 19th century France, and classical music
- 3D-printed models of ancient cities and fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls
- Digitized topographic maps and rare 19th century novels
- Off-grid wi-fi access and local area networks
- Citizen science projects about lead contamination and climate change
- An independent and user-friendly web platform for reporting hate crimes in Hamilton.
- A sensor that detected biometric and environmental data on dogs engaging in social work (really!)
If you would like to create a digital project of your own, please reach out to us. We are especially interested in interdisciplinary work, collaborations with community groups, and projects that centre social justice.
