Digital Lecture Series, Friday March 20th: UW Prof. Kathleen Woodward
Professor Kathleen Woodward's interdisciplinary focus as the director of the Walter Chapin Simpson Center for the Humanities (University of Washington) brings together scholars & cultural leaders to develop new campus-community partnerships and transform scholarship. On Friday, March 20th, the Kelvin Smith Library's Digital Library Lecture Series features her as she presents The Intellectual Wealth of Digital Networks.
Professor Woodward will discuss digital humanities in view of Web 2.0 technologies, with examples such as the September Project, Latinos in U.S. Popular Music (Experience Music Project), and the Seattle Civil Rights and Labor History Project, the website called "a model for what academic historians can do using the Internet. Part archive, part teaching resource, part exhibit..." (The Journal of American History, Vol.95, No.4, March 2009)
