DH Speaker Series: Mark Sample
Join us on Friday, April 10 at 2:00 p.m. in Reynolda 301 for a DH Speaker Series talk. Mark Sample (Associate Professor of Digital Studies at Davidson College) will give a talk titled “A Maze of Twisty Little Passages: From Bits to Books and Back Again.”
Mark Sample is, in his own words, a “literary scholar whose study of recent American fiction led him to the digital world, where contemporary artists and writers are on the vanguard of experimental literature.” His work includes, among other publications, an examination of the representation of torture in video (Game Studies, 2008) and a critique of the digital humanities’ approach to contemporary literature (Debates in the Digital Humanities, 2012). In 2013, he left his post as Associate Professor of English at George Mason University College to lead Digital Studies at Davidson College.
The DH Speaker Series features presentations about particular DH projects by WFU faculty and students and campus guests. Watch for announcements about upcoming talks.
We hope to see you there!
