Under specific consideration of the theoretical approaches and practical research influences of “interdisciplinarity” in neuroscientific research, this presentation addresses a time period and a subject of investigation that has only marginally been dealt with in the history of medicine and neurosciences: the influences and the context of the creation of early centres of neuroscientific research at the beginning of the 20th century.

Andrew Stauffer – Nineteenth-century Mark-up Language and the Future of the Library

Fri, 2012-09-21 17:00 - 18:30
Leacock Building : 232, 855 rue Sherbrooke Ouest Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 2T7
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.
