Take Note Conference

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!

  1. This is delightful! I’ve been watching the live webcast on and off for an hour. The link to the scanned and photo-reproductions of manuscripts was just crazy fun. So many cool samples of handwriting and technique and media. Then I started exploring the rest of the links form the Radcliffe site. I’m going to lose many hours here. Thank you for the story, Nifty!
