Joseph Brodsky: DH Lab

A highly collaborative experimental seminar open to graduate students and advanced undergraduates, the Digital Brodsky Lab has two primary objectives: to familiarize students with Joseph Brodsky’s poetry and prose and the critical tradition around his oeuvre; and to introduce students to new ways of conducting and presenting research, using digital tools. We make use of original materials from the Brodsky archive housed in the Beinecke to study draft variants, translations, as well as Brodsky’s interactions with other writers and institutions. The seminar meets in the Beinecke and will combine close readings of Brodsky’s work with collaborative learning, facilitated by guest lectures, training workshops, and invaluable contributions from Yale’s IT staff, Digital Humanities and Beinecke librarians.
