Lunchtime Lecture: "The Spirit of Notetaking: Traditional Research and Writing Strategies for the 21st Century" on Thursday, February 1st


Join us for the first Lunchtime Lecture of the Spring 2018 semester on Thursday, February 1st, 12:30-1:30 pm in the CTSDH Loyola Hall, 3rd Floor. Do the old ways of researching and writing work still work in the digital age? George Thiruvathukal (Professor of Computer Science) and David Dennis (Professor of History) will share their thoughts on the important topic coming out of their recent work creating ZettelGeist (https://luc.edu/ctsdh/researchprojects/zettelgeist/) , a plaintext note-taking system, inspired by the ZettelKasten Method (https://zettelkasten.de/posts/zettelkasten-improves-thinking-writing/), which supports the familiar tried-and-true method of organizing research using a card index.

This is a great chance to learn about a promising new tool in development.
