UCLDH guest speaker: Paul Conway, 'Word and Image in 19th Century Photographically Illustrated Books: Toward Enhanced eBooks'

Publication date: Nov 27, 2013 3:11:33 PM

Start: Dec 2, 2013 5:30:00 PM

Location: G31, Foster Court, UCL

Something isn't quite right about eBooks, right?  Perhaps we've lost something in digital translation.  Looking historically at an imagined future, my project is charting a path toward a more dynamic eReader environment by deconstructing a point in time (1850 to 1880) when photographers, authors, and publishers forged an uneasy partnership.  The talk is all about what I have learned so far on my research journey. It's definitely a work in progress.

Paul Conway is Associate Professor, University of Michigan School of Information and Visiting Senior Research Fellow at Kings College, University of London.
