Matthew Kirschenbaum in The New York Times and The Chronicle of Higher Ed

June 28, 2016

Matthew Kirschenbaum was recently interviewed in The Chronicle of Higher Education and quoted in The New York Times for his new book, Track Changes: A Literary History of Word Processing.

Kirschenbaum is quoted in an article titled "Why LinkedIn Will Make You Hate Microsoft Word" in The New York Times. Excerpt below:

Matthew G. Kirschenbaum, an associate professor of English at the University of Maryland and author of “Track Changes: A Literary History of Word Processing,” said the move reflected a failure to understand what writers need. “Most of the most innovative writing tools now on the market position themselves precisely as distraction-free platforms,” he said.

In the interview titled "The Ghost (Writer) in the Machine" from The Chronicle of Higher Education, Tom Bartlett asks Kirschebaum about Game of Thrones, word processors' effects on MFA acceptances in the 70's and 80's, and more.
