PUBLIC TALK: Reading and writing historical novels in the age of instant messaging
|Reading and writing historical novels in the age of instant messaging
A trillion text messages are sent and received every hour. Every minute 48 hours of video is uploaded on YouTube alone. The “present” has never been as ever-present as it is now. Institute of Advanced Studies Writer-in-Residence Kunal Basu will discuss whether such a high premium on the instantaneous and the topical in our “fact rich” world obliterate historical imagination.
