This session will explore the impact of the growing digital archive on teaching and re-search in the humanities by drawing on two recent databases acquired by the. St. John’s Library, Early English Books Online (EEBO) and Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO). We will discuss how these resources are reshaping the sorts of intellectual in-quiry we can undertake as humanities scholars; how they enable new possibilities for research in literary study and beyond; and how these innovations can enrich the liberal arts classroom. What counts as a “text”? What new analytic approaches can we under-take? What boundaries remain among humanities disciplines in the age of the digital archive?
Please join us as we ask how these resources redefine our work as scholars and teachers.
Date: Tuesday, October 2
Time: 12:15 to 1:40 p.m.
Location: Library room 110 in the back of the University Learning Commons, Queens Campus
