Animating the Archive – I

Professor Jeffrey Schnapp, January 14th, 2010, Roskilde University

Slides from the presentation

Jeffrey Schnapp occupies the Pierotti Chair in Italian and Comparative Literature at Stanford, where he founded the Stanford Humanities Lab in 2000 with the aim of creating a transdisciplinary platform for testing out future scenarios for the arts and humanities in a post-print world. Stanford Humanities Lab is a hybrid institution, a kind of Media/Tech Lab wedded to a Humanities and Arts research center, devoted to thinking outside of the box, to experimenting with public forms of scholarship and culture and to exploring the interstices between research and art practice. Schnapp’s current research interests lie in the domain of mixed reality approaches to scholarship, curatorship, and cultural programming and in a broad range of challenges placed under the general banner of “animating the archive.” Recent projects for example include a Mixed Reality Performance at the MITO Festival, an experiment in which physical spaces and musicians from different continents encountered one another on-line.
