The Moving People/Linking Lives symposium, an interdisciplinary event bringing together distinguished scholars to discuss and ask questions about social networks, prosopography, and narrative fiction, is being held this Friday and Saturday, March 20 and 21. Events kick off with breakfast and coffee at 8:30am on Friday in the Kaleidoscope Room in Newcomb Hall, followed by a session on "Narrative, Nonfiction, and Many Lives." A full program is available, but the event web site includes a list of participants, abstracts, and blog entries on symposium topics.
All events are open and free, and cover a range of interests, not just those of digital humanities.
The symposium is funded by the Page Barbour Lecture Fund and is co-sponsored by IATH, the Scholars' Lab, the Institute of the Humanities and Global Cultures, and the English, French, and Classic departments at UVA. It is organized by Alison Booth, Amy Ogden, and Jenny Strauss Clay.
