Last year’s successful forum series continues this fall with a new line up of discussions dedicated to supporting and celebrating Digital Humanities (DH) work being done by students, staff, and faculty on campus. Two projects by three speakers will be presented.

Laura Weakly, metadata encoding specialist in the University Libraries, will talk about the interesting finds and challenges that can be encountered when trying to encode correspondence in her talk “All that Glitters Will Not Be Encoded: Fun Finds and Fiction in Historical Correspondence.”

Professors Brian Pytlik Zillig, digital initiatives librarian, and Stephen Ramsay, Susan J. Rosowski Associate Professor in the English department, will discuss “Muybridge I,” a collaborative art installation involving animation by Pytlik Zillig and music by Ramsay. The work, a looping three-minute video, originates in the photography of Eadweard Muybridge, Victorian photographer and author of the seminal “The Human Figure in Motion,” published in 1887.
