The College of Liberal Arts’ University Forum Lecture Series presents Book Traces: Digital Humanities and the Future of the Library, a talk by Andrew Stauffer, associate professor, department of English, University of Virginia.
How will books and reading survive in the digital age? The Book Traces project looks to the past for answers by unearthing unique and endangered nineteenth-century volumes in library collections. Marginal inscriptions left by vanished readers help to write the history of the reading experience and predict its possible futures.
