Description

I will discuss the preservation work I am doing for the UNF Art and Design Department. In Fall 2017, I started transferring printed artworks from frames to proper storage files and digitally preserving and cataloging this collection. I will discuss this internship in relation to my previous independent research experiences in the London Imperial War Museum, British National Archives, British Library, and Bodleian Library, reflecting on the different kinds of documents I have handled there and the differences and challenges presented by artworks—as opposed to the ease of scanning and cataloging books. I will also be able to describe the artworks that UNF currently holds and speak to their significance to and position in a wider and longer art history. I aim to bring UNF’s impressive but largely unknown printed artworks collection to the attention of the Digital Humanities Initiative and to the faculty, staff, and students who are interested in projects that bridge and connect the Art and Design and English Departments.
