Below is a list of resources compiled by current Literature@MIT Faculty and Staff, including faculty favorites, tips and resources on how to take advantage of the many amazing opportunities Cambridge and MIT have to offer!
Library & Bookstore Resources
MIT Press Bookstore is worth regular visits for all things film/media/art/design/cult studies/theory; they have remaindered, slightly dented, completely delightfully discounted books, in addition to exquisitely expensive new runs. Always worth stopping in (right next to the Kendall MBTA stop).
