Revolutionary Texts in a Digital Age: Thomas Paine’s Publishing Networks, Past and Present

Wednesday, November 29, 2017 - 9:15am
Iona College and the Institute for Thomas Paine Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 1, 2018

While scholars of Early America are often careful to avoid anachronism, we are living in a moment of profound contemporary connections with communication networks of the past. In the Age of Revolutions, the creation and dissemination of information cultivated and complicated shifts in political ideology, commercial practices, and imperial infrastructure. Questions of access in these networks, of who can create information, who can circulate and commodify it, and on what terms, directly intersects with ongoing explorations of textual transformation in digital studies.

From E.T.A Hoffmann's Tales of Hoffmann and Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? to Isaac Asimov's I, Robot, Vernor Vinge's Rainbows End and Warren Ellis' Transmetropolitan authors have been exploring the human/machine interface since before the computer age. Today we stand on the threshold to the lab as the government contemplates microchipping all U.S. military personnel and office workers are already implanting themselves for convenience ala M.T. Anderson's Feed.
