Jeffrey Schnapp

Schnapp is the Faculty Co-Director of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society and the Director of the metaLAB at Harvard University, where he holds the Carl Pescosolido Professorship in Romance and Comparative Literatures while also teaching at Harvard's Graduate School of Design. A cultural historian with research interests extending from Roman antiquity to the present, recent books are The Electric Information Age Book, with Adam Michaels (Princeton Architectural Press, 2012), and Digital_Humanities (MIT Press, 2012). His pioneering work in the domains of digital humanities and digitally augmented approaches to cultural programming includes curatorial collaborations with the Triennale di Milano, the Cantor Center for the Visual Arts, the Wolfsonian-FIU, and the Canadian Center for Architecture. His Trento Tunnels project — a 6000 sq. meter pair of highway tunnels in Northern Italy repurposed as a history museum– was featured in the Italian pavilion of the 2010 Venice Biennale and in 2011 at the MAXXI in Rome.
