Literature in a Digital Age

Event Date: 
Saturday, May 30, 2015 – 2:45pm3:45pm
Location: 
Cole Assembly Room, Converse Hall, Amherst College

The Internet and digital technologies have been described as both a boon to literature and its death knell. What can we say in 2015 about how people write, read and listen to literary stories, poetry, experiences and opinions in the digital age? Can technology enhance our experience and appreciation of literature? How may the very definition of “literature” change in an increasingly digital age? What is the future for non-technologized methods of literary transmittal, also known as “books”?

Join David Kirkpatrick ’75, founder and CEO of Techonomy, Jim Kennedy ’75, senoir vice president of strategic planning at the Associated Press, Alicia Christoff, assistant professor of English, and Jennifer Acker ’00, founder and Editor of Chief of The Common. Presented by the Classes of 1975 and 2000.
