Jessica Pressman lecture
Wednesday, April 4 | 3pm | Transcriptions Studio: South Hall 2509
Transcriptions is pleased to sponsor a lecture by Jessica Pressman in spring term. She will be speaking on “The Undead Book: Jonathan Safron Foer’s Tree of Codes as Bookwork.”
Jessica Pressman is Assistant Professor of English at Yale, where she works on literary experiments from the 20th and 21st centuries and across media forms. Her first book project, <em>Digital Modernism: Making it New in New Media</em>, reads contemporary works of digital literature in relation to literary modernism and her current research, which she will present, focuses on how 21st-century literature—both in print and online— responds to the threat of an increasingly paperless and multimodal society.
