Book cover: Franco Moretti, "Distant Reading"

Salon interviewed Stanford professor Franco Moretti, whose Distant Reading (2013) recently won the National Book Critics Circle award for criticism: “As a literary critic who says he aims to study books without actually reading them, Franco Moretti has positioned himself as an iconoclast."

The Stanford Daily reported that 110 faculty and graduate students submitted a petition asking the Libraries to develop and implement a book and document delivery service to departmental offices. Assistant Professors of History Jennifer Burns and Mikael Wolfe, who co-authored the petition, were invited to present and explain their request to the Faculty Senate Committee on Libraries and the idea is being considered for feasibility and funding.
