Generative AI tools stake claims to anonymized, collective authorship through machine-generated texts that are similar to patterns in the datasets they trained on. The notion of authorship faces new challenges of delineating the agency, knowability, and intentionality of written words. Led by Alexa Alice Joubin (English and Digital Humanities Institute) and Kylie Quave (University Writing Program and Anthropology), this session explores our society’s evolving relationship to written words and the future of the craft of writing. Professors Joubin and Quave will also present examples of successful classroom writing exercises that use AI tools. This is part of the University Seminar on AI and the Humanities series of events.
