From Reading to Social Computing

In his talk, "From Reading to Social Computing," Liu will explore how literary study can incorporate the new social networking and other socially-oriented technologies to recover, and extend, the collective dimension of experiencing literature. He will also provide a sneak peak at RoSE, the new Research-oriented Social Environment his collaborative group has been building.


Alan Liu is Distinguished Professor in the English Department at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and an affiliated faculty member of UCSB’s Media Arts & Technology graduate program. Previously, he was on the faculty of Yale University’s English Department and British Studies Program.
