Heading to DC for the first time since 2020 to give my yearly talk at the Library of Congress NRPB!

I’m pretty convinced that the only persuasive plea to preserve the humanities must include coordination with public media, public parks, and primary and secondary public education.

since more and more people are joining just wanted to re-announce that tricia matthew and i are editing a book series on race in nineteenth-century literature and culture -- details in the flyer below and more info at https://www.bigger6.com/oup. send us proposals and/or share with others!

New to Mastodon and I'm gonna promote our new Library of Congress "Sound Submissions" program. We're the first non-terminal academic-federal collaborative research and preservation program. I'm serving as Director, my colleague Stephanie Sapienza (University of Maryland) is our coordinating Research Director, and the project is housed in the Recorded Sound Division and Reading Room at the LOC. loc.gov/programs/national-reco

Assemblag.es

assemblag.es is a Mastodon instance for people interested in thinking creatively and critically about technology, in the broadest sense. The only requirement is that you keep to the code of conduct! Note: we've paused new signups for a few days while we deal with the #twittermigration influx - please do request an invite, but be aware that for now functions more like a 'waiting list' than a knock on the door, until our numbers stabilise again :-)
