Jeffrey T. Schnapp

Jeffrey T. Schnapp is the founder/faculty director of metaLAB at Harvard and faculty co-director of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society.

His most recent books include The Electric Information Age Book (with Adam Michaels [Princeton Architectural Press 2012]); The Library Beyond the Book (Harvard University Press 2014); and Digital Humanities, an essay on cultural heritage issues published in Italian in the Meet the Media Guru series.

Digging through dark abundance of media, material, and data collections, metaLAB embraces the processual artifacts buried within the lives of digital and physical objects. With a team composed of scholars, writers, designers, developers, and filmmakers, metaLAB projects manifest as experiments in publication, pedagogy, and curation showcased in print, on the web, and in exhibited spaces. By combining traditional modes of practice, metaLAB research infuses scholarship with the spirit of hacking, making, and artistic investigation.
