Please join us for a DLA Behind the Scenes talk by Will Nash, Professor of American Studies and English and American Literatures. Nash will describe his original DLA objective, an electronic edition of Helen Thoreau’s anti-slavery scrapbooks, and discuss how his exposure to a broad array of digital tools and methodologies shifted his focus from the digitization of a print text to the creation of digital texts that built on the original artifact and opened new areas of inquiry. He will also show two brief media pieces he made during his fellowship, “Texts and Textiles: When is a Scrapbook Like a Quilt?” and “Romanticizing the Road: Artists Imagine the Underground.” Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP here by March 12.
Date: March 17
Time: 12:15-1:30 pm
Place: CTLR Lounge, Davis Family Library
