Assistant Professor Tyler Whitney will present "Media and Literary Histories of Phonography" at the "Inventories of the Material and the Natural" roundtable.
Former Michigan Society of Fellows and U-M Germanic department member Alice Goff (now Assistant Professor of German History at the University of Chicago) will also be a roundtable speaker at the workshop.
