Rena J. Mosteirin '07, lecturer in MALS, and James E. "Jed" Dobson, director of the Institute of Writing and Rhetoric and lecturer in English & Creative Writing, present their book, Moonbit (Punctum Books, 2019). Moonbit is a hybrid work comprised of experimental poetry and critical theory based on the computer code that made space travel possible: the source code of the Apollo 11 Guidance Computer, or the "AGC." Part poetry reading and performance, and part discussion about erasure poetry and critical code studies, this fall edition of the Dartmouth Library Book Talks offers an entry into considering code as both cultural and computational artifact.
This event will be held in the Baker-Berry Library, East Reading Room on the Dartmouth College campus.
