Kenneth Sherwood (English Department) delivered a presentation titled “Distanced Sounding: Versioning Poems in the Digital Audio Archive” at the 2016 annual conference of the Modern Language Association, held this year from January 7 to 10 in Austin, Texas.

Using a tool called ARLO, hosted on an NCSA supercomputer, Sherwood detailed a case study using visualization and the application of a structured vocabulary for tagging paralinguistic.
