A reader named LC tipped me off to this interesting conference happening this coming weekend at Harvard:
“Take Note” brings together scholars from literature, history, media studies, information science, and computer science to explore the past and future roles of note-taking across the university. Panelists will discuss the history of note-taking in different disciplines as well as the potential of emerging digital annotation tools.
Part of the conference is a virtual exhibition, with online images of some examples of note-taking throughout the ages.
Anyone can view it here.
Thanks for the info LC!
