N. Katherine Hayles, Department of Literature, Duke University

“Comparative Textual Media: Transforming the Humanities in the Post-print Era”

Dr. Hayles and UCSD Visiting Scholar Dr. Jessica Pressman are co-editors of the collection *Comparative Textual Media: Transforming the Humanities in the Post-print Era*, forthcoming from University of Minnesota Press, 2013. They present essays by a wide variety of literary scholars who analyze text across diverse media formats and historical periods, to argue that literary critics and departments need to reorganize around the recognition that the study of text is a study of media.
