Victorian Songs and Digital Tools: Facilitating Sound Studies Scholarship

Joanna Swafford
PhD Candidate, Department of English
Scholars’ Lab Fellow 2012-2013

Dr. Herbert Tucker
John C. Coleman Professor of English
University of Virginia

Although sound studies and interdisciplinary music and poetry scholarship have increased over the last decade, scholars have not had the digital tools necessary to make their auditory arguments accessible to a wider audience. This talk will present two tools built by Scholars’ Lab Fellow Joanna Swafford that will help change that: Songs of the Victorians, an archive and analysis of parlor and art song settings of Victorian poems, and Augmented Notes, a tool that will let scholars build their own interdisciplinary websites like Songs of the Victorians.

As always, you can listen to (or subscribe to) our podcasts on the Scholars’ Lab blog, or on iTunesU.
