Katie Chenoweth works at the intersection of literature, philosophy, and media history, with specializations in the French Renaissance and contemporary continental thought. Her first book, The Prosthetic Tongue: Printing Technology and the Rise of the French Language, explores how print culture transformed the French “mother tongue” by making it mechanically reproducible. Her current projects include a book on the uses and abuses of quotation by philosophers like Montaigne, Nietzsche, and Benjamin; a study of Jacques Derrida’s personal library and reading practices; and several digital humanities projects.
