Telegraphy: A Poetics of Immediacy and Compression

Date and Time: 
Thursday, April 7, 2016. 06:00 PM - 08:00 PM
Meeting Location: 
Stanford Humanities Center Board Room
Meeting Description: 

Justin Tackett will discuss his dissertation, which theorizes the relationship between poetry and sound technology from 1850 to 1930 in Britain and America. Sound technologies, such as the telephone, phonograph, microphone, and radio, were developed simultaneously on both sides of the Atlantic, often for the purpose of rendering transatlantic cultural exchanges more efficient. From the beginning, poetry was part of these exchanges.
