This fall the Center for Open Science will be on campus to provide a workshop on reproductibility in quantitative research.

June has been a busy month for us here in the Digital Collections Center and marks a great leap forward in our ability to handle the most challenging of bound materials in an efficient and careful manner.

Theatre to Cinema

The centerpiece of this collection is a reprint of Theatre to Cinema: Stage Pictorialism and the Early Feature Film, by Ben Brewster and Lea Jacobs first published by Oxford University Press in 1997. While previous accounts of the relationship between cinema and theatre have tended to assume that early filmmakers had to break away from the stage in order to establish a specific aesthetic for the new medium, Theatre to Cinema argues that the cinema turned to the pictorial, spectacular tradition of the theatre in the 1910s to establish a model for feature filmmaking.

  • Yesterday was #nationaltellajokeday and to honor that we’re featuring the Wisconsin Octopus. The Octopus was a student humor magazine that ran from 1919 to 1959. This was the cover of the March 1938 edition showing hockey players standing in water. Hockey was played outdoors at the time, and subject to the vagaries of the weather. .
