Thursday miscellany

Writers' passports in the Beinecke Library.

jane dark's sugarhigh! on Franco Moretti and 'distant reading.'

Sarah Weinman gives linkage on Charles Ardai and Hard Case Crime at Confessions of an Idiosyncratic Mind - we are doing a panel discussion along these lines at Columbia on Wednesday, March 25 at 6pm. It is an event geared towards Columbia alums, but I think it will be OK if I post details here - drop a line to the RSVP address below if you would like to attend, perhaps mentioning my name...

Please join alumni and friends of the Department of English and Comparative Literature for a special event co-sponsored by the GSAS Annual Fund

A panel discussion and reception with authors Charles Ardai, B.A. ’91, Leonard Cassuto, B.A. ’81, and Professors Jenny Davidson and George Stade

Havana Central at the West End, 2911 Broadway, New York, NY

RSVP by March 18 to Toni Hooper at 212-851-7832 or

Hmmm, I am certainly not contemplating period dress myself - I do not have anything suitable, I am thinking (wardrobe skews heavily towards running gear these days)...
