Our first class meeting isn't until next week, since the semester began with a Monday holiday, but that's good because I'm still weaving together the syllabus, readings, and assignments. Hopefully I'll have something to send out on Friday as a "getting ready" reading.
One tidbit to look forward to at our first class meeting: A screening of a 40-minute documentary on "life without print," starring and presented by our own resident print culture authority, James Danky. I think this film, which was funded and produced by the multinational printing and processing technology firm Hewlett Packard, will provide us a good entry point into many of the issues I want to explore with this seminar.
See you on Monday January 28 2013 at 9am in 4246 Helen C. White Hall.
