Join us for two talks about important projects in the digital humanities. The first talk is “How (not) to run a digital humanities startup: Building our shared digital cultural heritage and connecting creatively to artists and makers through the last five millennia” by Luke Hollis, founder of Archimedes Digital (https://archimedes.digital), a nonprofit digital humanities startup focused on preserving and offering access to our shared cultural heritages, and visiting researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was a UCARE Fellow with the Walt Whitman Archive and graduated from UNL in 2010.

The second talk is “UNL Campus Archaeology: Building Digital Resources” with Dr. Effie Athanassopoulos, an associate professor in anthropology and classics and religious studies at UNL. In the past four years, Athanassopoulos has been working with archaeological collections recovered from excavations on the UNL Campus. These efforts have led to the UNL Campus Archaeology project, a research project that relates directly to Nebraska’s heritage. Through classroom based research and collaboration, the faculty/student team is analyzing and reassessing archaeological and historical materials to explore the lives of Lincoln’s residents and the city’s early urban development.
