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

2014 L. Keith Bulen Symposium on American Politics - Winds of Change? The Midterm Elections and 2016

Winds of Change? The Midterm Elections and 2016 Midterm congressional elections are traditionally viewed as a referendum of the sitting president. With the Senate potentially up for grabs and the 2016 presidential election lurking around the corner, the implications of this November’s elections can hardly be understated. Will President Obama’s poor approval ratings doom the Democrats in Congress? How will the president’s agenda change in his last two years of office? Who will emerge as the front-runners for an open presidential election? The only thing that is certain is that American voters will have a lot to discuss and debate. The 2014 Bulen Symposium on American Politics will provide a forum for discussion and debate on these and many other political developments. The Forum will bring together community leaders, political strategists, and the academic observers of politics. The chairs of the Indiana State Republican and Democratic Parties, Tim Berry and John Zody will provide insider analysis of the election season. A media panel will provide a broader view of the state of American politics and what it means for the future. Presented by the Department of Political Science in the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI
