Event description: 

Will Stroebel is a Hannah Seeger Davis Postdoctoral Fellow at Princeton University. Stroebel is a comparatist specializing in Modern Greek and Turkish Literature, Book History and Mediterranean Studies. He received his PhD in Comparative Literature from the University of Michigan in December 2017. His first monograph project, tentatively titled “Reassembling the Greco-Turkish Book, 1910-1960,” follows a handful of twentieth-century Greek and Turkish works that moved across multiple formats, editions, bindings, geographies, alphabets or languages, taken apart and reassembled in deeply transformative ways despite the partitions of the nation state. His published or forthcoming work ranges from trauma and media theory to Karamanlidika ballads to twentieth-century Book History. He has editorial experience in both academic and literary journals, alongside years of hands-on organizational and service-work, co-organizing a multi-day conference, a yearlong film festival, and multiple visiting lectures.
