Dr. Marciano Speaks at the Mellon Sawyer Seminar on Nov. 1, 2019

Creating Data (and Absence) from the Quantitative to the Digital Age

The University of Pittsburgh was awarded $225,000 from the Andrew Mellon Foundation’s Sawyer Seminar program to fund a multi-year collaborative initiative titled: “Information Ecosystems: Creating Data (and Absence) From the Quantitative to the Digital Age.” The project brings fourteen field-leading international scholars to Pitt over the course of the 2019-2020 Academic Year for a bi-weekly series of workshops and public talks.

“The project seeks to advance critical understanding of where data comes from and how it is used, setting the present moment within a century-long history of information supply and its power-laden consequences.”

Dr. Richard Marciano delivered a talk on Nov. 1, 2019 at the U. Pittsburgh, on “Developing a Framework to Enable Collaboration in Computational Archival Science (CAS)”.
