The University of Otago Centre for the Book
is delighted to host a public lecture,
Literary Tourism, Geo-narratives, and Public Humanities;
or, why there’s an app for that
This Centre for the Book talk by David Ciccoricco will share the backstory and future directions of dtour, Dunedin’s literary tourism app, which was created as a UNESCO City of Literature project in 2018. It will demonstrate both live features and backend functionality of the app. The talk will conclude by discussing some of the theoretical context and planned publications surrounding the project, including perspectives from digital humanities, “geo-narratives,” and public humanities.
David Ciccoricco is Creative Director of dtour, Dunedin’s literary tourism app, and Associate Professor in English and Linguistics at the University of Otago.
