Unnam'd Forms: Perspectives on the Post-Digital Book, with Russell Maret and Whitney Trettien

February 26, 2019
3:30 - 5:00 PM
2115 Tawes Hall

Rather than speculating about the future of the book, we will invite each speaker to address its post-digital present, by which we mean the reality that books exist now (and indeed, are thriving) in a densely layered digital landscape and are themselves the products of digital design and fabrication techniques. Books are thus “post-digital” in the sense that they have emerged from the other side of the technology’s disruption with their material forms intact, but also irrevocably changed.
