Slides of my recent MLA talk on “Sewing Patterns,” part of the roundtable “Deep Time of the Nineteenth Century: A Literary Archaeology of Media and Objects.”
The following are my slides for an invited guest lecture that I recently gave at the Newberry Library as part of the Newberry’s public lecture series. In addition to the talk, I also had the opportunity to lead a session of the Fall 2014 Newberry Seminar: Research in the Humanities (“Knowledge and Technology: From Socrates to the Digital Age”), which is being co-taught by Bridget Draxler (Monmouth College) and Hannah Schell (Monmouth College). My thanks to Bridget, Hannah, the Newberry staff, and the absolutely splendid group of students in the seminar. The highlight of my visit was the chance to meet individually with students and learn about their diverse and exciting research projects.
