This invites reflection on how these modern technologies impact the generation of new questions. In order to examine this, the Max Planck Research Group Visualizing Science in Media Revolutions is organising a series of online seminars that asks researchers, librarians, software developers, curators, archivists, and artists to reflect on the impact that digital media and tools have on their working practices.
In the second of three* seminars taking place this year, we have invited Andrew Pettegree (University of St Andrews), Elisa Bastianello (Bibliotheca Hertziana - Max Planck Institute for Art History), and Glen Robson (IIIF Technical Coordinator) to reflect on how digital technologies have changed approaches to the discovery, study, and presentation of books; what impact the changing dynamic between the analogue and digital manifestation of the book has on their working practices; and how this affected questions that are asked or could be asked. The format for this seminar consists of three 10-minute lightning talks, which are followed by questions and discussion.
Speakers: Andrew Pettegree, University of St Andrews; Elisa Bastianello, Bibliotheca Hertziana - Max Planck Institute for Art History; Glen Robson, IIIF Technical Coordinator
Scientific Organization: Sietske Fransen & Oscar Seip
