Professor Alan Liu and the Early Internet

Content: 

Since 1994, when he created Voice of the Shuttle (VoS), a “Website for humanities research,” Alan Liu, professor of English at UCSB, has been a leading proponent of incorporating the digital world into the humanities. It’s been a period of technological leaps forward and malicious setbacks, and Liu will recount it in the talk “ ‘Wild Surmise’: How Humanists and Artists Discovered the Internet at UCSB, c. 1994 — An Origins Story,” Friday, Jan. 13, at 10 a.m. in the UCSB Library Instruction & Training Room 1312. It is free and open to the public.
