More About the Author

Before moving to Harvard in 2011, Jeffrey T. Schnapp occupied the Pierotti Chair of Italian Studies at Stanford, where he founded the Stanford Humanities Lab in 1999.

A cultural historian with research interests extending from antiquity to the present, his most recent books are The Electric Information Age Book (a collaboration with the designer Adam Michaels of Project Projects [Princeton Architectural Press, 2012]), Italiamerica II (Il Saggiatore, 2012), co-edited with Emanuela Scarpellini, Digital_Humanities (MIT Press, 2012), a book co-written with Anne Burdick, Johanna Drucker, Peter Lunenfeld, and Todd Presner, and Modernitalia (Peter Lang, 2012), a collection of essays on 20th century Italian cultural history, edited by Francesca Santovetti.

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 at the MAXXI in Rome in RE-CYCLE. Strategie per la casa la città e il pianeta (fall-winter 2011).

Faculty co-director of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, he is Professor of Romance Languages & Literature and also on the teaching faculty in the Department of Architecture at Harvard's Graduate School of Design.

He is the faculty director of metaLAB (at) Harvard.
