Clearihue Building, Room C112

A prolific public speaker on humanities computing, Dr. Ray Siemens is a leading expert on the electronic text. He publishes widely and recently co-edited the forthcoming Blackwell Companion to Digital Humanities . In this lecture, Siemens extends the idea of the printed book being a physical object with “human” characteristics into the electronic age, where it even lacks recognizable physical form.
