Module 2: Making/Publishing History: Printing of THE Book
Monday, Jan. 11, 2016 - Sunday, Jan. 17, 2016
  • Jan. 11: Watch video clip from The Big Bang Theory: In a blog post (not a comment!) examine Sheldon’s response to early text-adventure games to contemporary responses in relation to Elizabeth Eisenstein’s quote: “Scissors and paste are now outmoded; the integrity of the codex is being threatened, and blocks of text get moved by punching keys. Yet the views held by previous generations cannot be deleted as easily as can words upon a screen. Western attitudes that have survived for so long are likely to persist, no matter how many new electronic instruments are devised. Premature obituaries on the death of the sermon and the end of the book are themselves testimony to long-enduring habits of mind. In the very act of heralding the dawn of a new age with the advent of new media, contemporary analysts continue to bear witness, however inadvertently, to the ineluctable persistence of the past“
