Lecture: "The Future of the Past" with James O'Donnell
November 26, 2001 | 4-5:30 PM | 135 Humanities Instructional Building

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.
