Please join us at Villanova University’s Falvey Memorial Library for a Digital Seeds Lecture featuring Whitney Trettien, PhD, Assistant Professor of English, University of Pennsylvania. Trettien’s talk, entitled “Experimental Publishing, Then and Now,” will take place virtually via Zoom on Thursday, November 5, from 4–5 p.m. 

When we consider the role of the (digital) humanities today, we do so from within a fragmented field where the center no longer holds. This moment of creative destruction presents an opportunity to shift into a new register — one defined not by minute clefts between theories or methods but by a renewed commitment to how we compose and share our work. Specifically, how we publish — how we use media to make public the stories we spin about texts and their past lives. Drawing on her own experiments in creative/critical publishing (including most recently with the Manifold platform), as well as the deep history of writing with scissors and paste, Trettien will chart the politics, praxis, and urgency of digital publishing today. 

To learn more about Trettien’s research, please visit her website at: http://whitneyannetrettien.com/

This talk is part of Falvey Memorial Library’s Digital Seeds series. For more information about Falvey Library’s support of Digital Scholarship, please contact Erica Hayes, Digital Scholarship Librarian at erica.hayes@villanova.edu. Please also visit Falvey Memorial Library’s Digital Scholarship Program webpage to learn how the Library supports faculty, students, and staff interested in applying digital methods and tools to their research and teaching.
