Nov 17 6PM | Digitization: What is Lost and What is Found?

We are getting ever greater access to cultural works online through digital representations, but how far are those representations hindered by data losses and the processes of translation into the digital? Conversely, to what extent might they enable us not just easier access to existing objects but, more radically, the ability to see or hear things we have never been able to see or hear before? This panel event will reflect on these questions and present innovative digitization work from across the humanities disciplines at NYU.
