Dr Sarah Jackson, “Over-Hearing: Literature, Telephony and the Aesthetics of ‘Listening In’”
Dr. Sarah Jackson teaches English and Creative Writing at Nottingham Trent University. Her poetry collection, Pelt (Bloodaxe, 2012), won the Seamus Heaney Prize and was longlisted for the Guardian First Book Award. Last year she was selected as a BBC AHRC New Generation Thinker. She is currently researching the relationship between literature and technology, and the way in which tech devices – particularly phones – can become part of aesthetics. She will come all the way down here to discuss with us her research with a talk about Over-Hearing: Literature, Telephony and the Aesthetics of ‘Listening In’.
Free sandwich lunch, tea and coffee are offered by the college. To reserve a spot, and to request special dietary options, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
