The Future History of the Book: Time, Attention, Convention - John D. Barlow Lecture in the Humanities

The Future History of the Book: Time, Attention, Convention Kathleen Fitzpatrick Director of Scholarly Communication Modern Language Association Anxieties abound regarding the ostensible obsolescence of the book. Exploring whether the book is in fact becoming obsolete — and what it might mean if it were — requires thinking distinctly about the specific material form of the book (the codex) and about the content that it has long carried. If the form were to change — becoming digital, for instance — would our interactions with the content still make the book (if not exactly as we have known it) a viable vector for the cultural interactions the codex has supported? Would it be possible for us to find the powerful identification with the electronic book that we long have had with the codex book? And what might need to happen in order to effect such a transfer of our affections? 5:00  Reception 6:00  Lecture RSVP: libarsvp@iupui.edu Presented by the IU School of Liberal Arts
