Bitstreams: The Future of Digital Literary Heritage
Date of this Version
Matthew Kirschenbaum, Associate Professor of English and Associate Director of the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities, describes the lectures as an assessment of the future of literary heritage—archives, public memory, and scholarship in the face of the ubiquity of computers as instruments of composition, editing, and book design; the distribution of books through multiple media formats and platforms; the profusion of the literary conversation online; and the hybridity of the contemporary media archive.
Matthew Kirschenbaum has written and collaborated in the publishing of four books and often speaks and writes on the topics of Digital Humanities and New Media. His work has received coverage in The Atlantic, Slate, The New York Times, The Guardian, NPR, Wired, Boing Boing, Slashdot, and The Chronicle of Higher Education.
