MITH Digital Dialogue: Abigail McEwen, Archiving Modern Latin American Art: Sites, Students and Collaboration in the Greater Washington Area

When: Monday, April 01, 2013 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
Where: Hornbake : MITH Conference Room : 0301
Event Type(s): Lecture

This talk will introduce the International Center for the Arts of the Americas Documents Project and its recovery initiative in the Washington
area. Undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Maryland have worked on this
project over the academic year 2012-13, and their contributions -- from archival discovery to
digitization and scholarly analysis -- will be profiled as part of the group's work. The Documents
Project is at the forefront of digital initiatives in the field of modern Latin American art history,
and it has tremendous potential for use in teaching, research, and collaboration among scholars
across the Americas. The talk considers these different functions of the archive and reflects as
well on its role in shaping the discipline at institutional, regional, national, and international levels.
