UNC Chapel Hill's Robert C. Allen is a pioneer in the field of film and media studies; he published the first "definitive text" on the subject in 1986 titled "Channels of Discourse, Reassembled: Television and Contemporary Criticism." As part of the Center for Digital Humanities at the University of South Carolina's Future Knowledge lecture series, Professor Allen talks about his Digital Humanities project, Going to the Show—an examination of the culture and history of the cinema in North Carolina, and the importance of such projects.
