Five College Digital Humanities: Nick Montfort

Five College Digital Humanities is thrilled to host Nick Montfort, a poet and programmer who teaches at MIT, for a talk in our 2015 – 2016 Speaker Series, "Reality Would Have To Begin: Speculative Computing & World-Making." In his talk, Montfort will explain some of the particular challenges of translating computational literature and how this effort strives to correct the view of many in the English-language community, who usually see only English-language activity and imagine that this is the limit of computing.
