Title: Unlocking Art History: Letterlocking, X-ray Microtomography, and the Virtual Unfolding Algorithm
Speakers: Jana Dambrogio (MIT Libraries), Daniel Starza Smith (King's College London), Holly Jackson (MIT), David Mills (Queen Mary University of London)

For this first session, there will also be an opportunity to do some letterlocking yourself! Please bring some paper (printer paper is fine), scissors, some stickers or sticky tape (kids’ stickers are more fun!), and some sewing thread.
