Global Literature and Poetry: Looking Towards Technology as a Way to Represent the #Contemporary

This Spring NYU Florence GLS Junior Madison McCormick organized a dialogue on Global Literature and Poetry: Looking Towards Technology as a Way to Represent the #Contemporary, bringing Italian writers Alessandro Raveggi and Vanni Santoni and Bellevue Park Pages co-founders Will Cox and James Bird together to talk about the impact of technology on their practice and the diffusion of their work (and the work of others) to a wider public.

In the below interview, Madison talks about how she came up with the idea to organize her dialogue (and how much research she had to do!), the differences between the contemporary cultural scenes in Florence (Paris, London) and New York, and what is unique about contemporary culture in Florence.
