Professor Nick Montfort will describe how computation has been used to implement theories from the humanities and artistic practices, yielding new insights and new types of artistic and literary work. Just as an architect may build a model of a building out of wood, and just as an economist might model an economy using a computer, it is possible to build models of how we write, models of poetic and narrative composition.

His presentation will include a discussion of the literary concepts explored in his work and a reading of several of his digital poems.
