Andrew Stauffer - New Tools for Online Humanities Scholarship

This lecture draws on the wealth of marginalia – names, dates, marks, signatures, comments, and drawings – which nineteenth century readers marked in their books. Prof Stauffer uses this evidence to reconstruct the history of how Victorian readers interacted with their books, and how they interacted with each other through their books. Projects such as Google Books make digital versions of these volumes more accessible to modern readers.
