As a historian of books and literature, I’m guided by the belief that reading all kinds of texts attentively, generously, and creatively opens up new dimensions of meaning within and among them—regardless of whether they are popular or literary, humanistic or scientific, material or digital. By the same token, as an instructor I strive to help students draw connections between the rich significance of a single textual detail and their own experiences and goals beyond the classroom.
