Reading Matters Conference: Film Screening and Discussion

“Reading Matters” is a three-day conference at Princeton University that calls on an interdisciplinary group of distinguished scholars to respond to contemporary, political problems in their many social, textual, material, and embodied manifestations, and through considering reading as a collaborative, engaged and generative practice. In reflecting on why and how reading matters, participants will consider the influence of new media and the digital humanities on reading, and the viable encounters between the humanities, the creative and applied arts, and the natural sciences.
This first, kick-off event of the conference is a screening of director Fabrizio Terranova’s documentary “Donna Haraway: Stories of Survival”, followed by a Skype discussion between Angela Creager (History) and Donna Haraway (UC Santa Cruz). A reception follows this event.
This event is free and open to the public. As space is limited, however, we recommend registering at https://readingmatters.princeton.edu/registration to secure your spot.
