In May of 2013, we received a UC Faculty Development Council Grant to run a series of five workshops in order to help us determine the best ways to use The Elliston Digital Audio Archive for instruction and research. The fourth of these lectures will take place on March 29, 2014 and will be led by Michael Hennessey. This workshop will examine creative opportunities for poets and others writers.
Michael Hennessey is an instructor at the University of Cincinnati, as well as the editor of PennSound and Jacket2. He specializes in 20th/21st century poetics and fiction, literature and media, literary theory, and archiving methodologies.
The workshop model we are using draws some inspiration from recent successes in crowd-sourcing. Put another way, our workshops will engage scholars and poets alongside digital archivists from UC Libraries – faculty and students representing quite distinct areas of expertise – to innovative collaboratively while exploring and developing new skills.
Each full-day workshop will be held in a computer classroom in Langsam Library. For more information, or to inquire about the possibility of attending any of these workshops, please contact Jay Twomey.
