“Experimental Publishing, Then and Now”

November 2, 2020

You are invited to Villanova University’s Digital Seeds Lecture “Experimental Publishing, Then and Now” featuring Whitney Trettien, PhD, Assistant Professor of English, University of Pennsylvania, Thursday, November 5, from 4–5 p.m. via Zoom.

Sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library, this virtual event is free and open to the public. However, to attend you must register.

When we consider the role of the (digital) humanities today, we do so from within a fragmented field where the center no longer holds. This moment of creative destruction presents an opportunity to shift into a new register — one defined not by minute clefts between theories or methods but by a renewed commitment to how we compose and share our work.

Specifically, how we publish — how we use media to make public the stories we spin about texts and their past lives.

Drawing on her own experiments in creative/critical publishing (including most recently with the Manifold platform), as well as the deep history of writing with scissors and paste, Trettien will chart the politics, praxis, and urgency of digital publishing today.

This talk is part of Falvey Memorial Library’s Digital Seeds speaker series.
