Join us on Tuesday, February 20th from 12:15-1:30pm for our next Behind the Scenes presentation. 

A collaboration between Michael J. Kramer (Assistant Professor of the Practice, Digital History/Humanities; Associate Director of the Digital Liberal Arts @ Middlebury College) and archivists at the Northwestern University Library, the Digital Berkeley Folk Music Festival Project explores digital modes of activating and analyzing the 36,000 artifacts in an archive of a folk festival held annually on the University of California Campus between 1958 and 1970. Digital curation, annotation, timelines, mapping, glitching experiments, an audio podcast series, and multimedia essays become a means for participants, researchers, students, educators, and aficionados to create and contribute to a digital public history website. We’ll dig into three specific examples drawn from the larger project—podcasting, image glitching, and a digital mapping project—to discuss how the digital can activate an archive of artifacts when they contain the traces and residues of intangible cultural heritage and the ephemeral past.

Lunch will be provided.  Please RSVP below so that we can order enough food.
