Reading Eastern Europe Digitally: Promises for the New Millennium

What does the Digital Age hold in store for Eastern European cultures? In an era dominated by the opening of secret archives, by an intense re-writing of the socialist past, the opportunities offered by a wide dissemination of texts and works of art too long hidden by the Iron Curtain and many other “curtains” point toward a new Guttenberg-like moment.
This panel seeks to explore ongoing projects associated with libraries and academic centers from Eastern European countries which would put these cultures on the worldwide digital map. Our panel will consider the scholarly potential of manuscript curation, of digital mapping of books and art collections, and inter-media readings– among its topics.

Suggested topics:
On-going digitizing projects of Eastern European archives.

The limitations of copyright.

The advantages and shortcomings of digital methodology and of the open source archives.

The new visibility within the European and American context provided by portals like http://www.europeana.eu and others.

Please send abstracts and a short CV to Letitia Guran: liguran@ncat.edu by March 12, 2016.
