The Department of English Speaker Series presents Linda Hutcheon from the University of Toronto. In the brave new digital world, where anyone can become a reviewer online, what is the fate of the expert, professional reviewer? What roles have reviews had in the past and how have these been altered in the new democratized digital realm? Is there any sense lamenting, or celebrating, our trusting of the opinions and taste of ‘someone like ourselves’ as well as of the ‘elitist’ expert? Lively discussion is free and open to the public, staff, faculty and students.
