"Reading the Literary Archive: A Tale of Scholarship and Taste"

Isaac Gewirtz, curator of the Berg Collection at the New York Public Library will present an illustrated lecture on the literary archive as embodying the most recent stage evolution of the study of English and American Literature. He will show how "reading the archive" offers a new way for a writer's papers to be studied and enjoyed; that is, as the author's meta-work. which bears and transmits intentions distinct from, if dependent on, the author's oeuvre.

Cliff Dwellers, 200 S. Michigan, 22nd floor. Timing: spirits at 5:00, dinner at 6:00, program at 7:30.
