December 1, 2022 – IN PERSON @ the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center
Worthy Martin will discuss IATH and its collaborations in local history.
The Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities (IATH) was founded in 1992 with the primary mission of transforming faculty scholarship through collaborations to make effective use of computationally mediated methods. Most often, this mission is accomplished through the IATH Fellows Program in which faculty propose scholarly investigations important to their own interests. In addition, IATH undertakes to obtain external funding for similar projects.
Following President Ryan’s mission for the University, IATH also engages with the broader community beyond the University and this talk will give a sample of such projects, including:
Virginia Emigrants to Liberia
The Architecture of the Negro Travelers’ Green Book
Social Networks and Archival Context
The Countryside Transformed: The railroad and the eastern shore of Virginia 1870-1935
