The Past’s Digital Presence

This is a interdisciplinary graduate student symposium that will be held at Yale University on 19-20 February. Some of the discussion panels will include:

  1. How is digital technology changing methods of scholarly research with pre-digital sources in the humanities?
  2. If the “medium is the message,” then how does the message change when primary sources are translated into digital media?
  3. What kinds of new research opportunities do databases unlock and what do they make obsolete?
  4. What is the future of the rare book and manuscript library and its use?
  5. What biases are inherent in the widespread use of digitized material? How can we correct for them?
  6. Amidst numerous benefits in accessibility, cost, and convenience, what concerns have been overlooked?

About Nate Hoffelder (11460 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
