Feb 27, 2015 from 10:00 AM to 04:00 PM
Memorial Lounge, Pasquerilla Spiritual Center
Six leading scholars in nineteenth-century and modernist American literature join the Penn State community to examine the co-evolution of technologies, media, and social worlds over the last two centuries. By taking up the circuits structuring cultural and political relations, and the ways they are imagined in American literary spheres, this symposium productively mediates the connection between two critical periods and fields.
PANEL ONE: 10:00-11:45 | CIRCUITS: KINSHIP & AMERICA
PANEL TWO: 2:00-3:30 | CURRENTS: TECHNOLOGY & THE BODY ELECTRIC
WRAP UP: 3:30-4:00
