Spring 2023 Digital Seeds Lecture: Tyechia Thompson, PhD, and Carli Smith on "Baldwin's Paris 2.0"
Please join us on Thursday, March 16, at 4 p.m. for a virtual talk by Tyechia Thompson, PhD, and Carli Smith on "Baldwin's Paris 2.0" as part of Falvey Library's Digital Seeds Speaker Series.

Baldwin’s Paris 2.0 (hereafter referred to as BP2) is the culmination of a Virginia Tech graduate seminar on Black American literature, where we traced and interrogated the African-American expatriate experience in the city of Paris. BP2 is a multimodal prototype that was collaboratively pitched, designed, implemented, and evaluated by our team that maps quotations from James Baldwin’s fiction and essays directly onto the city of Paris, including contemporary images and street views, links to archival/historical material, and paths that follow characters’ movements. We extended the scope of Baldwin’s Paris 1.0, originally executed by Dr. Tyechia Thompson, to include more detailed location-specific information so that Baldwin scholars and enthusiasts can use the tool in order to form analyses of character and place.

This ACS-approved event, sponsored by Falvey Library, is free and open to the public.
