Katherine Bode Lecture/DH Grad Mixer
Professor Katherine Bode is a specialist in digital literary and textual studies at the Australian National University. Her latest book was published by University of Michigan Press in July 2018. She is currently working on a project entitled "Reading at the Interface: Literatures, Cultures, Technologies." This project aims to use new, extensive digital evidence of reception to progress a central insight of cultural criticism: that meaning is not carried by texts but produced in interactions between texts, contexts, and readers. The project will generate an interactive digital platform to connect scholarly work in Australian literary studies to public discussions of literature, enrich reading experiences and provide a vehicle for literary research that engages diverse publics and enhances understanding of Australian literature.
