Poetics and Annotation
1:45 PM–3:00 PM Saturday, Jan 5, 2019
Hyatt Regency - Columbus EF
Description: Panelists explore annotations across historical periods, asking what marginalia, footnotes, and other such paratexts can tell us about the dialogic spaces they create, the development of the lyric, and past and current reading practices. Considering both published and unpublished annotations, speakers also think through the challenges and possibilities of annotation in the digital age.
