ReSounding the Archives Symposium

April 24, 2018 - 5:50pm
Garden Room – Hotel E

ReSounding the Archives is a collaborative project, funded by 4-VA, between the University of Virginia, Virginia Tech University, and George Mason University. The goal of ReSounding the Archives is literally to “re-sound” the archives — to bring World War I sheet music to life through recordings and live performances. Students from Mason, UVA, and VT are working together to select, research, record, and explore music history from new vantage points.

At this public symposium, students from UVA Professor Elizabeth Ozment's course will present their research on WWI-era sheet music from the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library. Researchers from VT will also present on sheet music from their archive and musicians from VT and GMU will perform selections. The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (RRCHNM), led by Kelly Schrum, Associate Professor of Higher Education, and Jessica Dauterive, Digital History Fellow, will publicly present the website they have developed for the project.

The symposium is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Hotel E is located at 250 McCormick Road, the far southwest corner of Jefferson's original Range.
