PhD Alumnus Jacob Haubenreich (College of the Holy Cross) will give a workshop titled "Materiality and Meaning in Contemporary Literary Studies: A Workshop."
This workshop will focus on the what might be called the "materialist" or posthermeneutic" turn(s) in contemporary literary studies: why and how have current discussions of media materialities, affect, presence, embodiment, a-signifying practices, "new materialism," and new philology emerged at this particular moment in intellectual history? And how do these discourses relate to more "traditional" questions of textual interpretation?
The presentation will be followed by a discussion of the job search process and things you can start doing early on to prepare yourself to enter the academic market.
