GENESEO, N.Y. - Martha Nell Smith, a pioneer in bringing literary texts and studies to the Internet, will address "Digital Forensics: Texting Emily Dickinson" at the eighth annual Harding Lecture Sept. 29 at 4pm. The presentation will be in the MacVittie College Union ballroom and is free and open to the public.

Smith is a professor of English and founding director of the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) at the University of Maryland. She co-edited "Emily Dickinson's Correspondence: A Born-Digital Textual Inquiry," and has authored and co-authored several other books and numerous articles on American literature. She is also the coordinator and executive editor of the Dickinson Electronic Archives projects at the Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities (IATH) at the University of Virginia.

SUNY Geneseo launched the annual Harding lecture in 2004 in honor of the late Distinguished Professor Emeritus Walter Harding, an internationally known faculty member who was the world's leading scholar on 19th-century author Henry David Thoreau. Harding was the founding secretary and former president of the Thoreau Society, the oldest and largest international organization devoted to the study of any American author.

Harding taught in the Department of English for 26 years. He died in 1996. Harding's wife, Marjorie Brook Harding, created an endowment to make the lecture series possible. She significantly enlarged the endowment in 2010 , assuring that generations of Geneseo students and faculty will benefit from Walter Harding's tradition of scholarship and learning.
