About Us

The AMP Lab at UBC Okanagan houses projects that engage in the work of the humanities–adding value to cultural artifacts through interpretation and analysis–-in a digital context, with an emphasis on audio media and/or poetry. Broadly, all AMP Lab projects investigate the relationship of digital and non-digital media to cultural heritage, whether through digitization, remediation, preservation, or circulation. The stakes are high: we pursue questions about what both scholars and the general public can know about digitized cultural history.

The primary research project in the AMP Lab is the UBCO branch of the SSHRC-funded SpokenWeb Partnership Grant, on which UBC (Okanagan) is a Partner Institution.
