Eitan Freedenberg is a PhD student in Visual and Cultural Studies and an Andrew W. Mellon Fellow in Digital Humanities at the University of Rochester, as well as a curatorial assistant at the Buffalo Architecture Center. His dissertation analyzes connections between open-air museums, World’s Fairs, garden cities, and other "themed landscapes" that reflect changing notions of space and place in the early twentieth century. In 2014, he was the curatorial assistant for Technicolor 100, the George Eastman Museum's online exhibition about Technicolor’s centennial, and in 2015, he curated The Glory of Old Monroe, a gallery exhibition at the University of Rochester that explored Rochester’s involvement in the Civil War. He is currently the research assistant for Architectural Biometrics, a digital humanities project that seeks to understand variation and transformation in standardized architecture, particularly historic railway stations in Canada and Turkey.
