    Building Access

    • Randall Library will be closed to faculty, staff and students, other than Randall Library staff, effective immediately. Remote support will remain available and you can reach us by email, chat, or text
    • The Faculty Commons, Distance Education Classroom, Honors Classroom, Library Instruction Classrooms, and the Auditorium are not available to be used or reserved while the library is closed. Any current reservations are canceled until the Library reopens. 

    Returns 

    • If possible, please hold any materials currently checked out until the library reopens. Fines will not be assessed during our closure.
    • If you are graduating or leaving the area for the summer, you may return materials to the book return slot to the left of the library's main entrance. The book drop located in Parking Lot D is closed.
    • If you have left the Wilmington area, you may request a prepaid return label by filling out this form
    • Please note that returned materials will not be removed from accounts immediately as staff are not currently working in the building.

    • As is the case for the rest of UNCW, the library faculty and staff are following the guidelines that the campus has set for teleworking. We hope that students, faculty, and staff prioritize requests for assistance and collections with that in mind. Our highest priority at the moment is supporting the teaching and learning goals of the university.

    UNCW Digital Humanities Initiative presents:

    The Boundaries of Digital Humanities

    This talk considers the boundary trouble of digital humanities, variously described as a field, a metadiscipline, a community of practice, an academic fad, or—according to Matthew Kirschenbaum—a “tactical term.” While DH can be useful in some contexts, in others it creates problems. I draw upon my own experiences implementing DH at research universities and within my own scholarly work and teaching to reframe DH in terms of field conversations, collaboration, and interdisciplinarity.

    Monday, April 6, 2020, 3:30 p.m., Bear Hall 106

    Light refreshments will be served.

    Paul Fyfe is an associate professor of English at North Carolina State University. His research and teaching compass British Victorian literature, comparative media studies, and digital humanities. He is the author of By Accident or Design: Writing the Victorian Metropolis (Oxford UP 2015, paperback 2020) and is working on a new book called Digital Victorians: Technology, Literature, and Transmission which has been generously supported by the American Council of Learned Societies and the National Humanities Center. He participates in a number of DH projects including: Oceanic Exchanges which tracks information flow across international nineteenth-century newspaper networks; Illustrated Image Analytics which experiments with how computer vision can search and sort Victorian periodical illustrations; and Victoria's Lost Pavilion which virtually reconstructs Queen Victoria's garden pavilion as a three-dimensional model.

    This event is sponsored by the College of Arts & Sciences and Randall Library.
