Abstract (in English): 

Matthew G. Kirschenbaum, a professor of English at the University of Maryland and director of the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities, explored questions of technology, research, content and writing at the intersection of literary and technological history during an ATLAS Speaker Series presentation Oct. 1, 2012.

Drawing from his book, “Track Changes: A Literary History of Word Processing,” Kirschenbaum talked about how word processors have changed the history and culture of authorship and how technology has changed the relationship of writers to their craft. 

This event was a collaboration between the ATLAS Institute, CU’s Department of English, The ICJMT (Information, Communication, Journalism, Media and Technology) Initiative, University Libraries ScriptaLab and Friends of the Libraries.

The ATLAS Speaker Series is made possible by a generous donation by Idit Harel Caperton and Anat Harel.
