Video of My Talk on Geolocation at Illinois

I gave a talk on my recent work — titled “Where Was the American Renaissance: Computation, Space, and Literary History in the Civil War Era” — as part of the Uses of Scale planning meeting at Illinois earlier this month. Ted Underwood — convener of the meeting and driving force behind the Uses of Scale project — has posted a video of the event, which includes my talk as well as Ted’s extended intro and a follow-up round table discussion on future directions in literary studies.

The event was lovely; my thanks to Ted for the invitation, to the attendees for some very useful discussion, and to the Mellon Foundation and the University of Illinois for funding the Uses of Scale project, with which I’ve been involved as a co-PI over the past year.
