What is the relationship between “image” and “text”?  Are they utterly distinct data types, or are they rather ranges on a continuum?  Or are they the same, but only differently-scaled? This talk will give a digital humanities spin on examples from the Russian baroque to Pushkin to early Soviet picture books; from OCR to AI.

Glen Worthey (Stanford) will deliver the opening keynote for the Princeton Slavic Digital Humanities Working Group's 2019 Summer Workshop:  Digital Humanities and Visual Resources:  The Material and Digital Lives of Eastern European and Russian Artifacts

Glen Worthey has been Digital Humanities Librarian at Stanford since 1997, and was founding head of Stanford’s Center for Interdisciplinary Digital Research (CIDR).  He’s held many roles in the international DH community, most recently co-chair of the DH2018 conference in Mexico City.  His graduate work (ABD) was in Russian children’s literature at the University of California, Berkeley.
