Reading Matters Conference: Presentations II

December 1, 2018 · 10:00 am EST · Betts Auditorium

Department of Comparative Literature & School of Architecture

“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.

The third and final day begins at 10:00 AM, with presentations by Jack Halberstam(Columbia University), Sanford Kwinter (Pratt Institute, University of Applied Arts Vienna), Katrin Pahl (Johns Hopkins), Gayle Salamon (Princeton University), Debarati Sanyal (UC Berkeley), and Patricia J. Williams (Columbia University).
