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:
- The Transformissions of the Archive: Literary Remainders in the Late Age of Print
- The Poetics of Macintosh: Recovering the Digital Poetry of William Dickey and Kamau Brathwaite
- The RESTless Book: Bibliography and Bookish Media
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.
