Author and accidental globe-trotter Geoff Dyer talks about why travel has been so central to his writing.
Dyer’s genre-defying new collection of essays explores “the power that some places exert and why we go to them.” In a series of videos and interview excerpts, the award-winning author shares more about his new book, some of his greatest influences and his advice for those aspiring to be a writer.
Not long after its emergence in the early 19th century, photography gained prominence both as visual art form and as a means of journalistic documentation — with the two seemingly disparate genres often overlapping. Kate Flint, Provost Professor of Art History and English, and Geoff Dyer, writer in residence, delve into photography’s role as a window on life and an evolving method of defining reality.
Award-winning author Geoff Dyer will teach undergraduate and graduate courses beginning this Fall.
