RESOURCE: Bitstreams: The Future of Digital Literary Heritage

Recordings of the 2016 Rosenbach Lectures in Bibliography at the University of Pennsylvania, given by Matthew Kirshenbaum (University of Maryland), are now available. Given as a series of three talks collectively titled, Bitstreams: The Future of Digital Literary Heritage, Kirschenbaum’s lectures examine “the prospects for archives, public memory, and scholarship” in literature’s digital age:

Kirschenbaum’s topics include: “the ubiquity of computers as instruments of literary composition…the distribution of books through multiple media formats and platforms…the profusion of literary conversation online…and the hybridity of the contemporary media archive,” among others.
