On January 12, Hanjo Berressem (University of Cologne) will be our guest with a lecture entitled "'Practices of Reading...': Series and Serialities." The talk looks at new practices of reading in the 21st century media ecology, focusing in particular on remediations of film and television in recent literature. At the heart of the argument lies the notion of ‘intense seriality.’ The event will start at 6 pm sharp in room 201. There is no admission fee; all are welcome!
