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.
