On April 30th, from 10:10-11:10, I’m moderating a panel on Augmented Realities at Inertia: A Conference on Sound, Media and the Digital Humanities. The conference takes place at UCLA’s Charles E. Young Research Library and was organized by Mike D’Errico, a Ph.D. student in musicology, and one of my digital humanities advisees. Go Mike!
