Guest lecture by Prof. Jenny Rice (University of Kentucky)

Wednesday, June 10, 16:00-17:30
Building 404,  room 101, Bar-Ilan campus

The interdisciplinary field of "digital humanities" has suddenly exploded across the world, but what exactly does this term mean? More importantly, what is the larger contribution that the digital humanities can offer to literary studies, rhetoric, creative writing, historical study, and humanities in general?

Prof. Jenny Rice is an Associate Professor of Writing, Rhetoric, and Digital Media (WRD) at the University of Kentucky. Her book, Distant Publics: Development Rhetoric and the Subject of Crisis, is published by University of Pittsburgh Press. She has published scholarship on topics such as public rhetoric, affect, rhetorical ecologies, and new media writing.
