Word, Power, Bartleby: Melville in the Digital Age
7:00 PM
Carroll College, Trinity Hall Lounge
Description:
As part of Carroll College's annual Literary Festival, keynote lecturer John Bryant will present "Word, Power, Bartleby: Reading Melville in the Digital Age," which explores the question: What relevance does a famous nineteenth-century writer like Herman Melville – author of Moby-Dick and “Bartleby the Scrivener”– have for us in the twenty-first century?

John Bryant, founder and director of the online resource the Melville Electronic Library and Professor Emeritus of English at Hofstra University, has written extensively about “fluid texts,” which evolve over time. He is the author of numerous books and articles on Melville, the founding editor of Leviathan: The Journal of Melville Studies, and the editor of print and electronic editions of several Melville works, including Moby-Dick, Typee, and The Confidence-Man. Currently John is at work on a multi-volume biography titled Herman Melville: A Half-Known Life.
This event is free and open to the public.
