Interview with Alexander Beecroft for Asymptote

After a bit of a delay, my interview with University of South Carolina Associate Professor of Classics and Comparative Literature, Alexander Beecroft, is up on the Asymptote blog. We discussed Beecroft’s hefty analysis of the geographical and socio-political influences on spoken and written languages, traversing both time and the globe. His book is available from Verso, perhaps one of my favorite publishing houses, and certainly worth checking out for those interested in the development of language and literature beyond those found in the West. For a summary, read my interview here.
