Tyler Youngman, who is double-majoring in Music History & Cultures and Information Management & Technology (with a minor in Music Performance), was recently accepted into SU's New Explorations in Information Science Technology Research Lab. As a member of this student-driven program, Tyler plans to continue developing a Digital Humanities project devoted to the history of the “théâtrophone,” a late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century telephonic transmission system pioneered in Paris. Tyler began working on this project in HOM 592 Music, Space, and Place, under the supervision of Prof. Sarah Fuchs Sampson. In Spring 2018, Tyler used archival sources to chart Parisian théâtrophone listening sites on a georeferenced historical map.
Way to go, Tyler!
