The Auburn University Libraries’ Discover Auburn Lecture Series is presenting Beverley Rilett in a program titled “Bringing 19th-Century Literary Scholarship into the 21st Century: the George Eliot Archive.”

The program will be available as both an in-person program in the Caroline Marshall Draughon and as a Zoom presentation available here. The lecture will be held Feb. 23 at 3 p.m.

Rilett joined Auburn University Libraries’ Special Collections and Archives in fall 2020. She directs a major, peer-reviewed digital humanities project, the George Eliot Archive. Rilett will describe how 21st century computational technology is helping to illuminate 19th century literature, and how this international project benefits Auburn University.

The Discover Auburn Lecture Series is open to the public.
