C19 Panel on Media History and Material Practice
Exciting news! I just learned that a panel I’m co-organizing with Blake Bronson-Bartlett (University of Iowa) has been accepted for the third biennial conference of C19: The Society of Nineteenth-Century Americanists.
The panel, currently entitled “Calculating Marks: Media History, Mathematics and Material Practice in Nineteenth-Century America,” aims to reevaluate literature, authorship, and aesthetic values at the “elementary level” of “calculating marks,” or the written notations and techniques that encode (i.e., “markup”) different forms of nineteenth-century cultural expression. It features papers from myself, Bronson-Bartlett, and Thomas Augst (New York University).
Send me an email if you want to read the full abstract.
