Dan Sinykin Speaks at Bucknell

Dan Sinykin, Assistant Professor of English at Emory University, will speak on “The Conglomerate Era: A Computational Study of U.S. Fiction” on Thursday, September 30, 2021 in the Great Room at Hildreth-Mirza Hall, 4:30-6:00pm.

Over the last thirty years, publishing houses have become ever larger through business acquisition and consolidation, a process known as conglomeration. In this lecture, Sinykin asks how conglomeration has changed literature. The scope of this question poses methodological challenges that Sinykin answers by enlisting computational analysis alongside literary analysis and archival research.

Professor Sinykin will also conduct an interactive lunch seminar with students on the ethics and politics of artificial intelligence. The lunch will be held on Friday, October 1, 2021, 12-1pm.

The event is sponsored by the Program in Comparative & Digital Humanities; co-sponsored by Library & Information Technology and the Department of English; and has received funding from the Bucknell University Lectureship Committee.
