Washington U. professor to lecture on the art of text messaging

The emergence of text messaging has sparked widespread discussions about styles of communication. In the early 2000s, text messages even became the vehicle for an art exhibit in a Berlin subway station.

Lutz Koepnick, a film and media studies professor at Washington University in St. Louis, has published articles on a variety of topics, including German literature, film, media, new media aesthetics and visual culture

At noon on Thursday, March 31, Koepnick will lecture on "TXT BCK? On the Art of Text Messaging," in Shiffman 219. This event is co-sponsored by the European Cultural Studies Program and the Center for German and European Studies.
