In the third
and final seminar of this year, we have invited Ruth Ahnert (Queen Mary
University of London), Dirk van Miert (University of Utrecht), and Jessica
Smith (John Rylands Library, University of Manchester) to reflect on how
digital technologies have changed approaches to the discovery, study, and
presentation of correspondence; what impact the changing dynamic between the
analogue and digital manifestation of the letter 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.
