[Postponed] Lecture – Digital, Archival, Literary: Evolving Models for Digital Scholarship (Julia Flanders, Prof. of Practice in English and Director of the Digital Scholarship Group at Northeastern University Library), Co-Sponsored with BYU Office of Digital Humanities
March 26, 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm MDT
POSTPONED UNTIL FALL 2020
This presentation will consider our evolving conceptions of “digital text”, through the lens of the 30-year history of the Women Writers Project. The shifting tensions between information and artifactuality have produced changes in both theory and practice for editors, readers, and tool designers. We’ll look not only at the digital object itself but also at larger aggregations: archives, digital collections, data sets, and networks of linked open data. How are digital texts and digital collections framed in social, professional, and disciplinary terms, and what are the consequences for work flow, expertise, pedagogy, public reuse, and cultural authority?
