Anja-Silvia Goeing

Anja-Silvia Goeing is Privatdozent at the University of Zurich and a Visiting Fellow in the Harvard History Department. She will be working with Professor Ann Blair to organize the early modern and book history groups and websites at Harvard University. Her book Storing, Archiving, Organizing: The Changing Dynamics of Scholarly Information Management in Post-Reformation Zurich is in press with Brill’s series Library of the Written Word. Her work includes studies on fifteenth-century biographies written about the Italian humanist Vittorino da Feltre (1999; 2014). She has co-edited two volumes about late medieval and early modern textbooks and collectors’ knowledge (2008; 2013), and lately, with Ann Blair, the Festschrift for Anthony Grafton For the Sake of Learning (2016).

She is currently principal investigator of a British Academy Project "Worlds and Networks of Higher Learning" with workshops in Newcastle upon Tyne, Oxford, Cambridge (where Richard Sergeantson was the internal organizer at Trinity College Cambridge) and the Institute for Historical Research in London. Co-investigators are Mordechai Feingold (Caltech) and Glyn Parry (Roehampton).

Moreover, her research of educational data sets, scholarly collections and 3D-visualizations takes shape in her work on the cultural history of 3D models that she presents at lectures and in courses, such as "MUSE E-111 Physical Models and Computer Visualizations: Their History and Their Use in Museums" for Harvard Extension in Spring 2017.
