In May of 2013, we received a UC Faculty Development Council Grant to run a series of five workshops in order to help us determine the best ways to use The Elliston Digital Audio Archive for instruction and research. The first of these lectures will take place on September 21, 2013 and will be led by Jerome McGann. This workshop will map the conceptual significance and possibilities of The Elliston Project and of digital audio archives more generally.
Jerome McGann is a professor at the University of Virgina, specializing in 19th-20th C British and American Literature, Bibliography, Book History & Culture, Digital Humanities, Romanticism, and Textual Studies.
The workshop model we are using draws some inspiration from recent successes in crowd-sourcing. Put another way, our workshops will engage scholars and poets alongside digital archivists from UC Libraries – faculty and students representing quite distinct areas of expertise – to innovative collaboratively while exploring and developing new skills.
Each full-day workshop will be held in a computer classroom in Langsam Library. For more information, or to inquire about the possibility of attending any of these workshops, please contact Jay Twomey.
