Dr. Julie Beth Napolin of The New School, NYC will be giving a presentation, "Digital Faulkner: Mapping the Speculative", on the topic of the Digital Yoknapatawpha cartography project.

Friday, Nov. 8, The Studio and the Department of English are pleased to host guest speaker Julie Napolin, Assistant Professor of Digital Humanities at Eugene Lang College, The New School for Liberal Arts. Dr. Napolin addresses the speculative territory of digital cartography in a moment when the digital humanities are re-mapping our literary encounters. Napolin describes how the UVA "Digital Yoknapatawpha” project, of which she is Associate Director, is addressing the theoretical and practical challenges of transforming narrative into data, and then visualizing that data in a digital map.
