The Virtual Textile Project

Stefan Sinclair

Stefan Sinclair, head of McGill’s Digital Humanities group, oversees the technical development of the open access database, which will be the largest and most technically sophisticated textile database worldwide. The Virtual Textile Project is an example of one the leading edge ventures that are fostered by McGill’s Digital Humanities, which is a joint initiative between the Faculties of Arts, Religious Studies and Music, and the Library. It aims to foster the growth of Digital Humanities Research and Scholarship through coordination of events, speakers, and resources across the university.
