The MyNDIR Team

The Current MyNDIR Team

MyNDIR Editor and SSHRC Insight Development Grant Project Lead: P. A. Baer
Trish Baer
Trish Baer received her Interdisciplinary Ph.D. in the departments of English and History in Art from the University of Victoria in 2013. Her Interdisciplinary dissertation “An Old Norse Image Hoard: From the Analog Past to the Digital Present” was nominated for “The Governor General’s Gold Medal Award.” Her doctoral dissertation unites the long-established field of Old Norse Studies with the emerging field of Digital Humanities.
In addition to exploring the transmission, reception, and remediation of illustrations, Baer’s dissertation documents the creation of a digital image repository named: MyNDIR (My Norse Digital Image Repository). MyNDIR was launched at the UVic’s Digital Humanities Summer Institute (June 2013) and was awarded the 2013-14 “Digital Humanities Praxis Innovation Award.” Baer was awarded a Social Sciences and Research Council Insight Development Grant (2020 – 2023) for Visualizations of Norse Myths for Children in the Victorian and Edwardian Eras (1837-1915).
