Today’s focus: Room 204
One of the seminar rooms in Falvey’s Learning Commons, which is often filled with studying students when not in use for an event, is Falvey room 204. This is an exceptional space for presenting to a group in a setting that can accommodate either rows of chairs or an arrangement of tables and chairs. Its default layout is classroom style.
Associate Professor of History Craig Bailey, PhD, (pictured below) discusses, with a group in Falvey room 204, the Ardmore Project, one of the Digital Humanities (DH) projects for which Falvey is a partner. Another DH project unveiled in room 204 was the mapping of ancient sites by students in Valentina DeNardis’s, PhD, “Cities of Ancient Greece” (Classics 2051) course, Travels Through Greco-Roman Antiquity. Digital and Special Collections Curatorial Assistant Laura Bang wrote in Golden Electrode: the Aurelius Digital Scholarship Initiative Blog, “in addition to our continued collaboration with Dr. DeNardis on describing the ancient world, we will be collaborating again with Dr. Craig Bailey of the History department on a reiteration of the Ardmore Project. This time around, we will actually be expanding the project to encompass more of Lower Merion Township.”
Room 204, which is part of the Learning Commons, is a visible seminar room across from the elevator on Falvey’s second floor. The space, with its large screen and projector, is ideal for the many types of lectures and symposia co-sponsored by the Library.
Library events held in room 204 have included talks on John Paul II’s theology of the body, the intersection of medicine and robotics, the World War I centennial, Remembering the Holocaust in Lithuania, and Spanish Renaissance artist El Greco for Hispanic Cultural Heritage Month.
If you are interested in booking an event, or just more information about seminar room 204, please contact a member of Falvey’s Scholarly Outreach team, which manages this event space for the Library.
