Author, critic, technologist and new media pioneer Dr. Jay David Bolter will deliver two lectures at Missouri S&T on Thursday, March 2. Among his many accomplishments, Bolter is known for the books he’s authored or co-authored and for pioneering hypertext as an application for creative writing.

Bolter will deliver “Remediation Revisited,” at noon in the Turner Room of the Havener Center. This lecture is free and open to the public but intended primarily for English and technical communications students and faculty.

His lecture, titled “Innovation, Creativity and the Metaverse,” will focus on the metaverse, which is a virtual-reality space where users interact with each other in a technology-generated environment. The lecture takes place at 7 p.m. at Leach Theatre with an opening reception in the lobby beginning at 6 p.m. Both the lecture and the reception are free and open to the public.

Bolter’s visit to S&T is sponsored by the university’s Center for Creativity and Innovation.
