New Media in American Literary History Interdisciplinary Symposium (RBS-Mellon Symposium)
5 December 2013 – 6 December 2013
Time: Times vary
Location: Northeastern University
Presented by: The Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in Critical Bibliography at Rare Book School; NULab for Texts, Maps and Networks; Northeastern University Humanities Center
A symposium aimed at bringing together “digital” and “analog” scholars interested in the history of American print media to discuss common questions and challenges, and to identify potential collaborations. The goal of the conference is to bridge the gap between digital and more “traditional” disciplinary work by putting scholars employing methodologies such as text mining, topic modeling, digital curation, and network analysis—in other words, “big humanities data”—into direct and productive dialogue with Americanist scholars, graduate students, and archivists employing well-established practices in book history, textual analysis, media studies, and critical bibliography in their work.
Sponsored by the the Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in Critical Bibliography at Rare Book School; NULab for Texts, Maps and Networks; Northeastern University Humanities Center.
