Date: Thursday, June 20, 2019
Time: 9:00am - 4:00pm
Location: Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library

The seminar will investigate how the cultural phenomenon of Renaissance antiquarianism influenced critical visions of the past in works published between the fourteenth and seventeenth centuries. Working with the collections of the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library, participants will explore critical methods and techniques of investigation evident in a selection of works on antiquarian erudition. Topics will include philology, archaeology (with a specific focus on epigraphy and numismatics) as well as art. The main goal of the seminar is to help participants understand how these fundamental tools of antiquarian scholarship contributed to the development of new scientific methods in the early modern period.

 

Instructor

Damiano Acciarino holds a Marie Curie Global Fellowship at Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia and at the University of Toronto, with a project regarding theory and evolutions of Renaissance antiquarianism. Dr. Acciarino has published two monographs as well as several articles on antiquarian scholarship and classical tradition during the Renaissance in various international academic journals.

This is a hands-on workshop in Python that covers reading, describing, and manipulating data, as well as conducting basic summary analyses, using the pandas package and Jupyter Notebooks. Workshop attendees do not need any experience with programming or Python/pandas, but must be familiar with tabular data and have a basic understanding of different types of data (quantitative/qualitative variables).

We will be using installed software on Windows computers in the MDL Lab and a sample data set that includes categorical, binary, string, and numerical data.
