I’m excited to be presenting some of my ongoing work on literary agency at MLA 2019 this January, on a roundtable with some of my favorite thinkers. Our panel, Bookish Transactions, has been included in the Presidential Theme, “Textual Transactions.” We’ll be thinking about digital publication from a variety of vantage points, including media studies, computational analysis, and literary sociology. It should be a fascinating conversation!
Join us on Saturday, January 5, from 12:00-1:15 in the Hyatt Regency, Crystal Ballroom C.
Panel 481: Bookish Transactions
Description: Aiming to explore publishing in an age of consolidation and digitization, this session brings together scholars who study publishing from a range of perspectives, putting into dialogue quantitative methods, media studies, literary sociology, and aesthetic analysis of individual works and careers.
