Please join us on Thursday, April 13, at 10:00 a.m. in the Byrd-Morris Room of the Harrison Institute and Small Special Collections Library for a panel discussion, “Digital Yoknapatawpha: Collaboratively Recreating Faulkner’s County.”
Directors of the Digital Yoknapatawpha project—UVA English professor Stephen Railton and Computer Science professor Worthy Martin—will join moderator Alison Booth of the English Department and Scholars’ Lab to discuss the fruitful collaboration of over three dozen literary and tech professionals who came together to digitally map Faulkner’s fictional universe, which he modeled after his home in small-town and rural Mississippi. The map drawings used in the project came from the Faulkner collection of the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library.
Learn more about the project and about the different issues that arise in digital humanities projects.
Refreshments will be provided.
