Friday Plenary Session

The Friday plenary session had an overflow audience, much like the Brown lecture the evening previous.
Professor Winkle and his team explored the contents of their a collaborative digital humanities research project, Civil War Washington through an interconnected set of texts, databases, images, interactive maps, and analytical essays.

The following sessions shifted from the Library’s fourth floor down to the third and filled the Washingtoniana Division and Black Studies splitting an overall attendance of nearly 200.

Friday 11:00 Session 1: Built Environment of DC
Friday 11:00 Session 2: Researching Public School history
