Suzanne Bellamy Cites "Mapping Jacob's Room" in Presentation About Edith Rickert, "Pioneer Digital Scholar."
In her presentation "The CODEBREAKER: Edith Rickert, Virginia Woolf and Modernist Intrigues," the Australian artist and scholar Suzanne Bellamy argues that Rickert's research at the University of Chicago in the 1930s presents an early version of twenty-first century digital approaches to Woolf's fiction. In the clip below from Bellamy's recorded presentation for the Annual Conference on Virginia Woolf in the beginning of June, Bellamy cites the Mapping Jacob's Room project from my English 1102 "Digital Woolf" course at Georgia Tech. You can learn more about Bellamy's art and work here.
