"The Future of the Past" with James O'Donnell
November 26, 2001 | 4-5:30 PM | 135 Humanities Instructional
A noted scholar of classical studies and the cultural history
of the late antique Mediterranean world, Professor O'Donnell
is also an innovator in the application of networked information
technology in higher education. He is currently Professor
of Classical Studies and Vice Provost for Information Systems
and Computing at the University of Pennsylvania. He co-founded
the Bryn Mawr Classical Review, the second on-line
scholarly journal in the humanities ever created. At the
University of Pennsylvania, he helped develop "New
Tools for Teaching," a project that has brought together
faculty and staff to design a common environment for the
tools of technologically-assisted teaching and learning.
His book, Avatars of the Word, is ground-breaking
in its discussion of the intersection of the history of
the written word and the age of cyberspace. Co-sponsored
by HumaniTech and the UCI Humanities Center.
