In Focus

The Digital Humanities Lab is thrilled to announce the launch of Ashbery’s Nest, a virtual tour of the American poet's Victorian home. Beginning with a prototype of the Center Hall, the site provides a unique opportunity both to see the art, objects, books, and furniture in the house, and also to hear clips from Ashbery himself, as he reads from related poems and discusses the role that these things, including the space itself, have played in his creative life.

Beinecke Library will be funding a graduate student fellowship to support the development of a website that will make available a digitized selection of the manuscripts, first editions, unique art objects, and realia in its Gimbel Dickens collection. The project leads are currently soliciting statements of interest from graduate students.
